Next Sauce: 
July 7 

This year the agricultural business 
of timber will be spotlighted in 
much the same way as last year's 
cotton industry. Special presen- 
tations include a 45-minute slide 
show, "Green and Gold," 
presented by Ed and Anna Burns 
which depicts the history of the 
timber industry in Louisiana. There 
will be two shows both Saturday 
and Sunday at 11 a.m. and 2:30 
p.m. A 20-minute silent film on 
cypress logging in the Bayou State 
will be presented at noon and at 2 

Dr. Donald Hatley, director of 
this year's festival, said represen- 
tatives for the timber industry are 
interested in the cultural and 
economic effects of this particular 
industry on Louisiana. 

Hatley is also the director of the 
Louisiana Folklife Center at NSU 
and producer of a commemorative 
album from last year's festival 

which features the North Louisiana 
String Band. 

"We have produced the kind of 
album that nobody has ever done," 
Hatley said. "There have been 
recordings of CaJun, Jazz and 
blues, all kinds, but no one has ever 
recorded North Louisiana hill 
country music. 

The String Band will help kick-off 
the festivities Friday night along 
with a bluegrass band, Loggy Bayou 
Misfits, and a third band, John 
Delafose and the Eunice Playboys. 
There is also a scheduled night of 
music Saturday featuring the 
Playboys along with three other 
groups whose music varies from 
CaJun Bluegrass to Rockabilly to 
Delta Blues. Tickets for the evening 
performances are $2 for the general 

Tickets for the daytime programs 
which include several of the bands 
along with the timber exhibits, 

shows and craft exhibits are $3 for 
adults and $1 for students and 
children (other than current NSU 
students) and children 10 years and 

Ticket books are $8 for adults and 
$4 for (other) students and children. 
The books include admission to 
both music shows and both daytime 

Several types of ethnic foods will 
be sold in the east end of the 
coliseum. Types of cuisine to be 
featured are soul food, which will be 
prepared by the Asbury Methodist 
Church. There will also be Creole 
foods, Jambalaya, Indian fry 
breads and meat pies sold by various 

NSU students wishing to help out 
at the festival are asked to call 
Camille Hawthorne at 357-6511. 
Students who work for four or more 
hours will receive a complimentary 
Folk Festival T — shirt.

Nalley Finds Complex Troubled 

By Mike Gallien 
Sauce Assistant Editor 

Scott Nalley accepted the job of 
director of the Northwestern State 
University Recreation Complex 
thinking he would be in charge of a 
new facility with a bright future. 

What he found was indeed a new 
facility, but one with a ton of 
problems and only a spoon to move 

"I was really surprised to find the 
place in the shape it was in," Nalley 
reflected on his arrival at Nor- 
thwestern in February. "It didn't 
take me long to figure out that there 
was a lot of work to be done." 

What Nalley found was a four- 
year old swimming pool that was 
aged beyond its years, tennis courts 
that were seldom if ever used, and a 
golf course that wasn't quite up to 

The new director set some goals 
for himself and the complex staff to 
start with. He wanted to try to whip 
the swimming pool into shape, get 
more people on the tennis courts, 
and at least make the golf course 
playable by May 1 . 

Considering the circumstances, 
that was a big undertaking for 
Nalley and his crew. 

"The pool was in really sad 
shape," Nalley admitted. "It 
looked like it had never been 
cleaned, like the water had been put 
in it four years ago and never 

"The water had stained the pool 
badly and a lot of the equipment 
was either missing or ruined," 
Nalley said. "It's a shame that the 
pool had been allowed to run down 
like that, because no matter how 
hard we work, we'll never be able to 
get it back to the condition that it 
should be in for a four-year old 

That didn't keep the staff from 
trying, though. During the spring, 
the pool was drained and cleaned. 

Nalley himself directed the clean-up 
operation, pouring acid on the 
stained areas of the pool, while the 
crew scrubbed the nasty looking 

"We were able to remove most of 
the stain with the acid," Nalley 
acknowledged. "It's in a lot better 
shape than it was." 

The golf course presented its own 
set of problems to add to Nalley's 
headaches. Louisiana Road and 
Bridge had pulled out in October, 
1980, claiming the course to be 75 
percent complete. 

That meant that the Northwestern 
crew would have to finish the other 
25 percent on its own, but non-stop 
work since October has still left 
much to be done. 

"Technically, the golf course is 
still in the latter stages of con- 
struction," Nalley allowed. "We 
are still workiing on it but it will be a 
year, at least, before it is 100 
percent complete." 

But the problems mounted. Not 
only did the crew have to complete 
the 25 percent left undone, but 
much of what had been completed 
had to be redone. 

"For one thing, the contractor 
had planted rye grass in the fair- 
ways," Nalley stated. "That stuff 
is pretty in the winter, but it is just 
not fairway grass because it dies off 
in the summer. 

"The contractor tried to plant 
bermuda grass on the fairways 
during the winter, but it won't 
germinate in cold weather," Nalley 
continued. "We had to plow up all 
of the fairways this spring'to kill off 
the rye grass and then replanted 
them with bermuda again. 

"That seeding took pretty well in 
places, but we have a problem with 
the clay hills on some of our fair- 
ways. There is no topsoil on them, 
so we're having a lot of problems 
getting a good stand of grass. " 

Among other problems faced by 
Nalley and his crew were drainage 
problems on the greens and in the 
fairways, as well as an excessive peat 
moss problem on the greens. 

To correct the problems, Nalley 
called in Jack Rager, Supervisor of 
Grounds-Turf Management at 

"When I first got involved, I 
didn't think it would be possible to 
open the course in May," Rager 
admitted. "There were quite a few 
problems that I didn't think we 
could overcome. 

"After I did some checking 
around though, I found that 
everyone has problems getting 
started," Rager continued. "I heard 
about one nine-hole course in 
Florida where eight of the nine 
greens had to be completely rebuilt. 
Taking that into consideration, we 
were in much better shape than I 

Rager and his hands have 
managed to get a good stand of 
grass in most of the fairways and are 
now in the process of working on 
the greens. 

"No. 4 and No. 8 need to be 
rebuilt," Rager said. "They are 
both very spongy and the drainage is 
bad on each. Right now, we are top- 
dressing each of the greens to get 
them into shape." 

Nalley is pleased with the progress 
of the course and feels it is just a 
matter of time before the course is 
one of the best in the area. 

"People have a tendency to 
compare us to the country club and 
at this point, that is just not fair," 
Nalley stated. "What a lot of people 
don't realize is with a new golf 
course there are problems that are 
bound to occur, like the ones we're 
having as well as insects and 

"Also, with our limited budget, it 
is hard for us to accumulate all of

Hoops Chosen For 
Athletes in Action 

Jim Hoops, a four-year starter on 
the Northwestern basketball team, 
has been selected to play on the 
Athletics in Action International 
basketball team for this coming 

Hoops, a native of Deshler, Ohio 
and a graduate of Patrick Henry 
High School there, made the team 
after going through workouts last 
week in Vancouver, British 
Columbia. The Athletes In Action 
organization also has a team that 
plays in the United states. The 
International group plays around 
the world during the year. 

"I was really excited about 
making the team," said Hoops, who 
is in Natchitoches until leaving for 
Vancouver on July 12. "When we 
go back in July it is for staff 
training. I think our first trip is to 
Poland and Russia sometime in 

The team has nine players 
returning from the squad that 
compiled a 54-10 record last season. 
So far Hoops and one othe player 
are the only new players to be added 
to the roster. 

"I first became interested when 
assistant Coach Dave Lower called a 
couple of weeks ago to see if I was 
interested," noted Hoops. "Coach 
sent them some file and then I went 
up there for the tryouts last week." 

Hoops was a starter most of last 
season and from the time he was a 
freshman until midway through last 
season started in 86 consecutive 
games for the Demons. Hoops 
averaged 5.8 points and 5.9 
rebounds this season. For his career 
the 6-5 forward scored 938 points 
and grabbed 582 rebounds. 

"Athletes in Action is associated 
with Campus Crusade for Christ," 
added Hoops about his new team. 
"The main objective for the 
organization is to build a platform 
through sports in which to witness 
ioi Chtistr. 

While most teams use the half- 
time break to rest and go over game 
strategy, the Athletes In Action 
team spends the intermission giving 
programs and personal testimonies 

Jim Hoops 

to the fans. Outside of basketball 
the players spend a great deal of 
time speaking at churches and to 
groups of high school students. 

"At first I was just going to get a 
job for next year," noted Hoops. 
"But this is a great opportunity. I 
knew I would make the team if that 
was what the Lord wanted. If I 
didn't make it I knew He has 
something better for me to do." 

Along with playing basketball at 
Northwestern for the past four 
years, Hoops has been very active in 
campus organizations. As a junior 
Hoops was a senator at large in the 
Student Government Association 
and as a senior he was Director of 
Student Rights for the same 

Hoops is a member of the Blue 
key Honor Fraternity, seving as 
vice-president as a junior and as 
president this past year. Hoops has 
also been involved in Fellowship fo 
Christian Athletes for four years. 
This year he was voted Mr. NSU, 
and was Phi Mu Sorority Man of 
the Year and was named to Who's 
Who Among America College 

Hoops received his degree this 
spring with an overall 3.17 grade 
point average in computer science- 
business administration. 

Hoops is the secorici /Nor- 
thwestern player in recent years to 
play on the Athletes In Action team. 
Dan Bell, a 1977 graduate made the 
team after completing his career 
with the Demons. 

Enrollment Up for Summer 

Enrollment figures for the 1981 
summer session show a significant 
26 percent increase in the total 
number of students in comparison 
to last summer's totals. 

"I think it is very good news for 
Northwestern," said Registrar 
Austin Temple. "We can't help but 
be optimistic about the increase." 

The large increase in students is a 
relief to the Northwestern com- 
munity as the school has been 
plagued by a steady decline in 
enrollment over the past decade. 

Optimism about the increase is 
guarded, however, as a major 
reason for the phenomenal increase 
is the state PIP, or Professional 
Improvement Program, for 
teachers. The program is designed 
to give educators sizable pay raises 
for continuing their education. 

"The PIP program has had a 
definite effect on enrollment," 
Temple admitted. "The number of 
students in the graduate program is 
nearly doubled over last summer." 

Temple noted that increases in 
several of the undergraduate 
colleges give administrators cause 
for high expectations for the fall. 

"We're seeing the fruits of our 

recruiting efforts coming in," 
Temple added. "The Inside View 
program, the mayor's program and 
our own high school relations 
department's efforts have all paid 

Temple also stated freshman 
application for the fall semester is 
well-above last year's total, as well 
as the number of applications from 
transfer students, leading ad- 
minstrators to believe the fall 
enrollment will be higher than last 
year's totals. 

The total enrollment for the 
summer semester is 4,689, nearly 
1 ,000 above last summer's figure. A 
total of 2,372 students are enrolled 
in graduate programs, while 2,317 
are enrolled in undergraduate 

The Colleges of Business and 
Science & Technology enjoyed the 
highest increases for the term. The 
College of Business has an 
enrollment of 501 students, while 
Science & Technology boasts 350 

Totals for the other un- 
dergraduate colleges are: Nursing- 
466, University College-447, 
Education-329. and Liberal Arts- 

NSU Professor Studies 'Bay of Pigs 

The ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion 
resulted in today's generation of 
Cubans being indoctrinated with the 
idea that the United States "is the 
embodiment of everything evil and 
eventually must be destroyed," says 
a study authored by a Northwestern 

The paper was written on the 20th 
anniversary of the invasion by Dr. 
Ramon E. Brodermann, who was a 
practicing attorney in Cuba until 
1960. Brodermann is a Spanish 
professor at NSU and holds a 
Doctor of Laws title from Lewis 
University in Chicago. 

The study says that "as a result of 
the fiasco... eight million citizens of 
a neighboring country traditionally 
friendly to the United States... have 
been enslaved by communism." 

Brodermann's paper outlines the 

chronology of the invasion from the 
planning stages to the retreat from 
the Bay of Pigs. The American 
government's refusal to provide 
military support to the Cuban in- 
surgents who were rebelling against 
Castro's rule led to its failure, he 

"For months there had been no 
doubt about U.S. involvement, but 
now it was an involvement in 
betrayal and failure," Broder- 
mann's study says. 

The fiasco gave the Soviet Union 
"a sanctuary in the Caribbean that 
has since been converted into an 
immensely formidable fortress," 
the paper states. "Cuba today is a 
totalitarian state, in many respects 
as repressive as Soviet Russia was 
under Stalin," it concludes.

The Word... 

...The Word Is Money 

You know, I was sitting back thinking the other day about what kind of 
people really come to summer school. I finally figured out that you could 
probably group these people in three different classes. 

The first class of people are those who HAVE to go to summer school. 
Either they have a year-round scholarship, or their grades were so bad in the 
spring that they had to bring them up, or they lacked just one or two classes 
to graduate, or they were in town coming from LSU, Texas Tech, or the 
Naval Academy and needed some easy credit. 

Then there was the second group of people. Those were the ones who 
were sick of the regular run-of-the-mill summer jobs like working at the 
local greasy spoon cafe flipping crisco-burgers over the grill or working at 
the local mill from seven to four and making a dollar and a quarter. 

And then there was the third group. And this group was by far the 
smallest group. These are the people who go to school just because they 
love the collegiate atmosphere. There are maybe three of these people. 

Now you may wonder what all of this is leading to; well you are about to 
find out. 

I was one of the unfortunates who HAD to come to summer school. No 
ifs ands or buts, I had to come to school. Coming here to school meant a 
loss of about $3000 from a job that I would have had this summer, so 
obviously I needed a part-time job where I could make a few bucks to 
support my summer habits. (Mainly my girlfriend's summer habits.) 

Fortunately I had this job with the Sauce thay payed me a small pitiance, 
but even that was not enough. So I went to apply for a job with the 
cheerleader camp. "Sorry," I was told, "if you already have a campus job 
you cannot work for us." 

Well, believe it or not I saw the logic behind that reasoning. It really 
would be unfair for me to hold two campus jobs while some poor schmuck 
out there was looking for his first job. However, a week later I found out 
that the cheerleadr camp was running short on able-bodied men to do the 

Again I inquired if I might get the job. I reasoned since they were short 
and nobody else had applied, then surely they would allow me to work 
again. So I went to Financial Aid and applied again. 

But nooooooooo, it was against the principles for them to hire me. "You 
already have a campus job, etc., etc., etc...., but (and this is a doozy) they 
would be more than happy for me to work for free. 

Now I may be dumb but I ain't stupid. I quietly thanked them and gave 
them a polite, "No thank you" and hurried off, disappointed and of course 
g i ^ '-•'*• 'cruptcy. 

I'm not bitter about this thing. I just think some changes could be made. 
If there is a shortage of available workers and if there is someone who 
already has a campus job and the new job would not interfere with the old 
job, why not let the person hold two jobs? Nobody will be hurting and of 
course with the quota of workers now filled, the new job can be run much 
more efficiently. 

...The Word Is Who Cares? 

You know, I was sitting back two weeks ago feeling pretty proud of the 
fact that it took just two writers to set up and publish a four page paper, 
with barely a week's worth of news. I thought to myself, now this was 
really a different Sauce than we usually have. I mean right there on the 
front page were pictures of FIVE NSU-Americans in track and field and it 
was not relegated to the back page. 

Then I looked again and saw that the SUGB had a front page headline. 
And they weren't being knocked! I looked even farther and noticed that the 
twirling and flag corps got front page publicity. 

And then on the second page, I noticed that we had a real fired up 
Radical Rag, and of course Doug Ireland's usual genious, not to mention an 
editorial that called for the student's of NSU to get involved with Hot Sauce 
and to also write letters to the Sauce. 

And then do you know what I found? That we did not receive a single 
letter to either Dr. Bienvenu or to ourselves. Last spring we got so many 
letters that we couldn't publish them all. Now, I guess that can mean only 
one thing. . .Nobody really reads the Current Sauce in the summer.

Radical Rag 

Thoughts on Cool Air and Swimming 

Do you know random? Well now, 
I know random! Why just the other 
day I was getting random and it was 
great! So, I decided since I didn't 
really have any one particular 
subject to get radical abour, I'll 
share a little random with the 

Random thoughts come and go 
but one that came and stuck is 
wondering if Northwestern plans to 
make a habit of turning the 
buildings on campus into saunas 
over the weekends. 

This thought entered my mind 
just as I was sweating, ur, uh, 
perspiring my way through a class 
on the third floor of the Arts and 
Sciences building, which is not as 
well known by its real name, John 
S. Kyser Hall. 

Last Monday I walked into the 
building when I suddenly realized it 
was much cooler outside-and it was 
over 90 degrees outside then. I 
knew it would be a long hour and 
not being the dedicated student I 
should be, I seriously considered 
cutting my one class in the steam 

I figured that since I had missed 
class the preceeding Friday, it might 
be wise to show up for the meeting. 
I don't know why I thought that; 
maybe it was just a sudden attack of 
guilt since my relatives had paid for 
the damned thing. 

Anyway, after I had lost 10 
pounds in class, I thought the thing 
to do would be to go to the Union 
and get something cool to drink to 
cool my arid throat. First, though, 
I'd better check the old mail box on 
the way. 

Guess what? No AC in the post 
office eithfir. It was expedient to 

move on to the Union. At" least 
there I would be able to find some 
relief-or so I thought. 

I grabbed the door to the Union 
when a rather brutal gush of warm, 
check that, make it hot, air slammed 
me in the face. Oh my God! Not the 
Union, too! It must be some kind 
of conspiracy to kill us all. 

Now my darling grandmother 
would tell me that they didn't grow 
up with air conditioning, and that I 
should take it all in stride, but I 
want to tell you something-I DID 
grow up with air conditioning, and 
being a winter-freak anyway, I felt 
like I was being brutalized. 

Some of my friends said the cool 
air was non-existent in most of the 
buildings on campus that day, 
including the dorms, and that they 
had been off most of the weekend. 
Well that set the thinker to working 
when I suddenly decided what the 
deal was, or might have been 

Maybe Northwestern's powers- 
that-be decided to cut all of the air 
conditioners off to save a few 
bucks. I'm not sure that that is 
what happened but if it is I have 
some news for those brilliant 
decision makers. 

The buildings on this campus, at 
least the ones built during my short 
life-span, were designed with one 
kind of ventilation system in mind— 
a central air heating and cooling 
unit. The windows are small and 
not well-placed, and most-of-all not 
built to assist the cooling unit. 

When the old AC is switched to 
off, the brick and cement exterior 
acts as an old style oven-the outside 
absorbs a tremendous amount of 
heat and then proceeds to bake 

every thing on the inside~you know-

human flesh, and other such 

Now maybe they figured that if 
they cut the thing off on Friday and 
turned it back on early Monday 
everything would be all right. If 
that's the case, they were wrong. 
The buildings weren't back to 
normal until Wednesday. 

I surely hope I'm wrong, but if 
they were trying to pinch pennies, I 
figure they'll end up spending more. 
While they were saving all those 
bucks, the buildings heated up and 
took two days to cool back down. 
Those poor little air conditioning 
units had work night-and-day, non- 
stop to get us cool again. 

The cost of the contstant running 
and the wear-and-tear on the 
machinery would more than likely 
be higher than keeping the building 
at a constant temperature and 
letting the unit shut on-and-off as it 
is wont to do. 

Maybe we ought to spend a few 
thou on a government study to see if 
we are saving more than we are 
spending, but, until we do~LEAVE 
THE AC ON!!! Please. 

Another thought randomly 
(randomly?) passed through my 
little head at the Wreck Complex 
swimming hole--you know~the 
cement pond out in the middle of 
that cow pasture where all of those 
guys are cutting grass with those 
little-biddy swing blades. 

Anyway the thought was just who 
were all of those people 1 was 
swimming with? I mean, hell, these 
folks range in age from six to 60, 
and it was awful perplexing to me 
how some of these folks were in 

college. Of course, I soon found 
out they weren't college students, 
but rather, citizens of our fine 

Now don't get me wrong! I don't 
begrudge someone a little dip in a 
cool pool to beat the heat. It's just 
that I thought we (the students) paid 
for the damned thing. I think it is 
only fair that we have priority over 
its use. 

Some days there are bumper-to- 
bumper people and very damned 
few of them are college students. I 
don't know about most of the 
students, but I do know that the 
ones I'm associated with don't want 
to fight a crowd of little kids and old 
people (sorry oldsters) for a little 
space in a pool they helped build. 

I guess what took the cake was 
this old lady screaming at me for 
accidently splashing a little water (a 
mere five-or-ten gallons or so) on 
her. She jumped me like there was 
no tomorrow. I told her it was my 
pool before it was her pool and for 
her to get out of my face. Of 
course, that didn't set too well with 

Admittedly, I was rough-housing 
(I always hated that term) a little, 
but there are two public (you know, 
meaning everyone) swimming pools 
in the city. She could have opted to 
go there. Anyway, until something 
is done about all of the "outsiders," 
I'm not going back out there. 

Well, I had a few other random 
thoughts but it looks like I'm out of 
space. I guess we'll have to chat a 
little more in two weeks. 

Oh, by the way, Happy 3rd of 
July. Yeah, the 3rd, that's the day 
we get off from school. Now, that 
is the day I'll celebrate! ! ! 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Brilab: Another Chapter, Same Book 

Thoughts after contemplating the 
mysteries of the eight-foot putt... 

...Testimony in the federal Brilab 
trial in New Orleans continues to 
implicate state politicians and 
administrators. Three of the six 
major candidates in the last 
gubernatorial race have figured in 
the sordid saga unfolding in federal 

Jimmy Fitzmorris and Sonny 
Mouton, both officials in the Treen 
administration, have denied ac- 
cusations that their gubernatorial 
campaigns struck deals with— FBI 
informant and undercover agent 
Joseph Hauser. Louis Lambert, 
who faced charges that he tried to 
buy the support of Fitzmorris, 
Mouton and other defeated 
Democrats for his runoff battle 
against Treen, says he accepted 
$10,000 from Hauser for tickets to a 
fund-raising dinner. The dinner was 
held days before Hauser "bought" 
the tickets. 

Hauser and former Com- 
missioner of Administration 
Charles Roemer discussed fixing the 
state group insurance contract and 
splitting the commissions. Roemer 
testified he thought Hauser was 
making a "campaign contribution, 
not a bribe." 

One of Roemer's co-defendants is 
Carlos Marcello, reputedly the 
godfather of the Gulf Coast. "The 
only person I would trust is 
Carlos," Roemer tells Hauser in one 
of the tapes heard by the Brilab 

Brilab is nothing new. It's just the 
latest version of corruption in state 
government, something that has 
been going on since Fort St. Jean 

Baptiste de Natchitoches was 

It's sad that Louisiana is used to 
this sort of thing... 

...Northwestern administrators 
pre not wearing forced smiles lately, 
not since enrollment figures for the 
summer session were compiled. An 
amazing 26 percent rise in student 
population has Roy Hall residents 
grinning unabashedly. 

Obviously, PIP is part of the 
population explosion on campus. 
The Professional Improvement 
Program for teachers has nearly 
doubled the number of students in 
the graduate program, Registrar Dr. 
Austin Temple says. 

But the largest increases came in 
the number of students in business 
and science and technology. And 
freshmen and transfer applications 
for the fall semester are significantly 
higher than normal. 

Could it be that, yes, the place for 
you is NSU? Is the springtime 
recruiting push by the "Friends of 
NSU" paying dividends already? 
Does Kryptonite harm Joe Sampite? 

Maybe, apparently and who can 
tell? Sampite headed the recruiting 
drive that everyone would like to 
believe is responsible for all us folks 
being here this summer. It certainly 
did achieve the goal of "recruit one 
student" but it's too early for 
hordes of eager collegians to 
descend en masse on NSU because 
of the campaign. 

Don't get me wrong. The 
recruiting effort this spring was 
something that NSU has sorely 
needed and it will bring students to 
our university. It will not keep them 

Upgrading the academic stan- 
dards will. That may seem a 
paradox at first glance, but over the 
past few years the standards here 
have slipped. It's an old tune but it's 
true. We've lost some of the good 
students and retained too many of 
the ones who are just biding time. 

The adminstration's attempts to 
improve the situation have helped, 
but too many weak teachers in core 
subjects undermine the efforts. 
Financial stress has forced layoffs 
of some quality (but non-tenured) 
faculty in marginal programs. At 
the same time, subpar teachers with 
tenure hang on like leeches. 

The hard fact is that upgrading 
academic standards is not 
something to be accomplished 
overnight. It will take years of small 
steps to scale the mountain of 
malpractice evolved here in the past 

As long as those steps are for- 
ward, the enrollment figures will 
take care of themselves... 

...I've got to put in a plug for the 
Natchitoches Folk Festival 
scheduled for July 17-19 in Prather 
Coliseum. I skipped the first Folk 
Festival last year because I wanted 
to play golf that weekend, or for 
some similar innane reason. I didn't 
think I missed much. 

I was wrong, big-time. 

At the Festival's press preview 
last Thursday, I got an idea of what 
I missed last summer. There's a 
great difference between reading 
about some decoy carver or walking 
stick maker and actually seeing him 
practice his craft. 

These people are dedicated and 
serious about what they do. It in- 

trigued me to see Harry Thibodeaux 
turn a block of wood into a finely- 
etched duck decoy that was more 
than a hunting tool. It wasn't 
something you would get off an 
assembly line. It was Harry's craft, 
a work of art. 

He was just one of a room full of 
craftsmen doing things that most of 
us have never thought about, things 
that our forefathers did. I guess the 
duck decoys caught my eye because 
my grandfather was an avid out- 
doorsman. There was Cajun 
music, gospel music, bluegrass 
music, and just plain blues enough 
for everybody. There was Clifford 
Blake calling the cotton presses to a 
room full of folks who wouldn't 
know a press if they ran into one. 
Yet, he commanded your attention 
because you knew this was 
something special, something that 
was obsolete because of technology 
but something that shouldn't be. 

If you caught Clifford Blake's 
eye, you noticed a twinkle, not 
unlike the one you noticed in 
Grandpa's visage the night before 
he took you fishing for the first 
time. "I've got a secret, and I'm 
going to let you in on it," the 
twinkle said. 

Everyone seemed happy. After 
all, it was a celebration. The 
craftsmen were commemorating our 
heritage with their skills. 

It wasn't something to be taken at 
face value. The walking sticks were 
nice, if you like that sort of thing, 
and the music made you smile and 
inadvertantly tap your feet. It was 
the spirit of the people, the artists, 
that made you realize how unique 
the Natchitoches Folk Festival is...

Hall of Master Folk Artists Established 

A walking stick carver, a 
champion fiddler and the "king" of 
cotton compress callers have been 
selected as charter members of the 
Hall of Master Folk Artist which is 
being established at Northwestern 
by the Louisiana Folklife Center of 

Charter members are Clifford 
Blake Sr. of Natchitoches, who 
called the cotton compress for 39 
years from Memphis to Mexico; the 
late Ray Beebe of Colfax, who made 
vast contributions to the fiddle 
music tradition in north Louisiana, 
and David Allen of Homer, whose 
hickory walking sticks reflected a 
"personal vision" in the tradition of 
the African wood carvers. 

Induction ceremonies were held 
last Thursday, highlighting the press 
preview of this summer's Nat- 
chitoches Folk Festival. The second 
annual festival is set for July 17-19 
in Prather Coliseum and will be 
produced bv the Lousiana Folklife 
Center . 

"In Louisiana," stated Dr. 
Donald Hatley, driector of the 
Louisiana Folklife center, "the 
people's art is folk art, and master 
folk artists present their work in a 
wide variety of forms... music, 
dance crafts, storytelling, foods and 
architecture. It is time for these 
master folk artists to be recognized 
and be given the respect due them.' 

A three-member panel from the 
board of directors of the Louisiana 
Folklife Center made the selection 
of the charter members of the Hall 
of Master Folk Artists. 

"Selection to the Hall is based on 
the folk artists' depth and quality 

and the longevity of their com- 
mitments to the folk arts," ex- 
plained Hatley. "A folk artist 
receives his art through example and 
oral explanation from members of 
his or her family and community. 
The folk artist them passes that art 
along to future generations." 

Allen, who will be featured later 
this year at the American Folklife 
Festival in Washington, D.C., has 
been carving African walking sticks 
from hickory saplings for more than 
30 years. 

His art is unique, because he lets 
the root of the small hickory 
determine the cane'e structure. 
Elaborate handles, in the African 
radition, are carved into the root. 

Researchers have found that 
Allen's use of black and white 
colors is common in African art as is 
his wide use of serpent motifs. One 
researcher said Allen's snake motifs 
are commonly found on African 
walking sticks and in coastal 
Georgia analogues. 

Blake, who says he can sing better 
than he can read, spent most of his 
life organizing the actions of the 15 
to 20 workers who were required to 
run the cotton press. He coor- 
dinated the unbuckling of the 
loosely-acked bales of cotton 
received from the gin and the 
positioning of the bales in the press. 
He also supervised the actual 
compressing and stacking of the 
bales in preparation for shipment to 
textile mills throughout the nation. 

"Blake was so good at calling the 
press that he could increase com- 
press production by 50 bales an 
hour," said Hatley. "Because he 
was so successful in increasing 
procution, there was a tremendous 

demand for his talent by the large, 
major cotton compressors." 

The Louisiana Folklife Center 
documented last year Blake's work 
chants around the cotton press. The 
oral documentation is a long- 
playing album entitled, "Cornbread 
for Your Husband; Biscuits for 
Your Man; Mr. Clifford Blake 
Blake Sr. Calls the Cotton Press." 

Beebe, who died in September of 
1980, gave his final public per- 
formance at the Natchitoches Folk 
Festival last June. 

"Ray was a craftsman," said 
Hatley, "and the waltzes and fiddle 
breakdowns he played reflected his 
technical skill. The thousands of 
people who danced to Ray Beebe' s 
fiddle are aware that he meant a 
great deal to our musical heritage." 

A former Louisiana State Fid- 
dling champion, Beebe played 
several years with Troy DeRamus 
and the North Louisiana String 
Band. The group's style of north 
Louisiana hill country music was 
recorded and an album, entitled 
"The North Louisiana String 
Band," was produced by the 
Louisiana Folklife Center. 

Beebe' s last public performance is 
included in the album. "On the 
front side of the album," said 
Hatley, "I think we have captured 
the personality of Ray Beebe and 
the band. We are pleased to have 
been able to record somebody like 
Ray, and this recording proves how 
important it is to document the folk 
arts in Louisiana." 

Before his death, Beebe worked 
with the North Louisiana String 
Band to preserve many songs "dear 
to generations of North Louisiana 
hill folk," Hatley said.

the equipment that we need to do a 
good job with the course," Nalley 
continued. "We're just going to 
have to wait and get a little bit at a 
time. That's all we can do." 

In the meantime, Nalley and 
Rager have one major goal as far as 
the golf course is concerned and that 
is to make the Northwestern course 
one of the best maintained courses 
in the area. 

"We still have a lot of things that 
we want to do with the course," 
Nalley said. "We want to get the 

Reasons Given 
for Bui lard Losses 

The speech and hearing equip- 
ment that was lost in the Bullard 
Hall fire April 18 is no laughing 
matter. Thousands of dollars worth 
of equipment, books, journals and 
teaching aids were destroyed in the 
blaze that demanded the attention 
of the Natchitoches Fire Depart- 
ment several times before it was 
completely put out. 

The question has arisen as to why 
the costly equipment was not 
removed from the building after 
what seemed to be an extinguished 

The fire department, policemen, 
and campus personnel were con- 
cerned about removing the 
equipment, but hazardous 
situations prevented this. Fire Chief 
Oscar Vails stated that there was an 
extensive amount of damage and 
much heat and smoke. Con- 
sequently, anyone who tried to go in 
to salvage the equipment would only 
be able to advance a few feet. 

Captain Taylor of the fire 
department explained that the roof 
of the building was a major problem 
in putting the fire out. The roof was 
made of a compressed paper board 
layered with tar. The roof caved in 
and covered smoldering embers, 
forming hot spots in the building 
which later blazed up into flames. 
This is the reason why the firemen 
had to make so many trips back to 
Bullard Hall.

La. Sports Hall of Fame 
Induction Set For June 27 

Dyes Finally Getting Recognition He Deserves 

As a college athlete, he had been 
through the pressure of national 
meets while competing in track for 
Abilene Christian College. But 
when the Demons set foot on the 
track at LSU earlier this month, it 
marked the first time as a coach that 
Northwestern's Jerry Dyes had his 
team competing in the finals of the 
NCAA national championships. 

Dyes is certainly no newcomer to 
track and field championships, 
either as an athlete or as a coach. In 
fact his 400-meter relay team had 
qualified for the finals last season 
before withdrawing because of 
injuries. And while competing in 
college Dyes was considered as one 
of the top decathlon men among the 
college ranks. 

Some of the pressure of Saturday 
night was lifted when freshman 
Steve Stockton tossed the javelin 
252-10 to take an early lead in the 
competition. Stockton's eventual 
third place finish served as a 
beginning to one of the greatest 
experiences of Dyes' coaching 

While being congratulated on his 
third place finish Stockton was also 
looking forward to the relay finals. 
"I'm going to show this to the relay 
team," Stockton said of the NCAA 
plaque he had received. "They'll 
know what it looks like before they 
get theirs." 

When the relay took center stage 
on the track Dyes watched from the 
stands, across the stadium from the 
finish line. Because of the awards 
ceremony afterwards it must have 
seemed like a year before Dyes was 
finally able to congratulate his four 

"When we won I really didn't 
know what to do or what to say," 
commented Dyes Saturday after the 
race. "I know I felt we had a 
chance to win, and then when Mark 
had the lead I knew they couldn't 
catch him." 

The win by the relay team and the 
third place captured by Stockton 
gave the Demons 16 points in the 
meet, good for a tie with Baylor and 
Oregon for 12th place in the nation. 
"I don't mind tving with those 

Science Students Doing Research 

Nine junior and senior level 
college students from across the 
country are on the campus of this 
summer doing original research on 
scientific projects in the hopes thaty 
they could possibly make an im- 
portant contribution to the field of 

These top students are assisted by 
3 grant from the National Science 
Foundation in the Undergraduate 
Research Participation Program. 

Supervising the summer work are 

four professors from the 
Microbiology and Biochemistry 
Department. They are Dr. Allen, 
Dr. Barridge, Dr. Griffith, and Dr. 

The students are working on 
projects from cancer cells to garfish 
toxin and their effects on each 
other, the bacteria streptococcus 
and determining the manner in 
which certain bacteria can survive 
within the body immunity system 
and the mechanics of the survival.

two," commented Dyes after 
learning of the standings. "They 
have pretty good track teams." 

After the initial thoughts and 
feelings about the meet, Dyes had 
time to think about what it will 
mean in the future for the Demon 
track and field program. "I'm 
going to enjoy this for awhile," said 
Dyes Monday. "It is the high point 
of my career as a coach. It was one 
of the top performances I have ever 
had anything to do with." 

While many of the fans were 
surprised at Northwestern winning 
the relay over such teams as Ten- 
nessee, Georgia and Arizona State, 
Dyes and his runners were not 
surprised that they were able to win. 

"I tell our kids all the time that 
everyone is human," said Dyes. "If 
you think you can win, then you 
can. Once you get to the finals of 
any competition, you always have 
the chance to come out on top." 

While Dyes says this may help his 
recruiting, he also knows that it will 
help some of the men already at 
Northwestern. "Most of the people 
we have are capable of winning at 
this level," noted Dyes. "But the 
tough part with some kids is getting 
their minds to believe that. I think 
this will help remove some of the 
doubt that our kids might have had 
about competing with anyone in the 

Coach Jerry Dyes 

While some schools may have 
taken the Demons lightly, Dyes 
doesn't think that it is the case for 
his team winning the relay event. 
"The Southwest Conference schools 
respect us," continued Dyes. "We 
compete against those schools alot 
and we won the event at the Texas 
Relays. I have talked with a number 
of coaches from that league about 
meets for next year." 

Dyes has already signed five high 
school standouts for next season 
and says he will add a few more. 
But for right now he is enjoying the 
results of last Saturday night along 
with his five All- Americans. No one 
deserves to enjoy it anymore than 
Jerry Dyes. 

Dozens of the state's best-known 
sports personalities will be in 
Natchitoches June 27 for day-long 
activities scheduled in conjunction 
with the Louisiana Sports Hall of 
Fame Induction Banquet. 

At Center Stage will be this year's 
Hall of Fame inductees. To be 
enshrined are Jerry Stovall, Tommy 
Mason, Willis Reed, Glynn 
Saulters, Howie Pollet, Faize 
Mahfouz, Buddy Blair and Emmett 

Stovall was an All-American at 
LSU and and All-Pro defensive 
back for LSU, and Mason earned 
All-America honors at Tulane 
before becoming one of the first 
stars of the Minnesota Vikings' 
NFL expansion team. 

A Grambling product, Reed was a 
superstar for the New York Knicks 
was named the NBA's Most 
Valuable Player in 1969-70. 
Saulters averaged 23.5 points a 
game during his career at Northeast 
and played on the U.S. Olympic 
basketball team. 

Mahfouz, the first high school 
coach to be inducted into the Hall of 
Fame, had successful teams at 
Eunice and New Iberia. Pollet, a 
New Orleans native, pitched in three 
World Series during his brilliant 
career with the St. Louis Cardinals. 

Blair was a member of LSU's 
only national championship 
basketball and track team and later 
played in the major leagues. 

Toppino, a world-class sprinter to' 
Loyola, ran on the U.S. "Olympic 
gold-medal winning 400-meter relay 
team in 1932. 

Mason, Stovall, Reed, Saulters, -s 
Mahfouz, and Blair will be in i 
Natchitoches for the induction 
banquet. Pollet and Toppino, who " 
will be honored posthumously, will 
be represented by members of their 

In addition to this year's in- 
ductees, a dozen former athletes and 
coaches inducted into the Hall of 
Fame in previous years will par- 
ticipate in the June 27 program, 
which includes a news conference, 
golf tournament, reception, Hall of 
Fame tour and the induction 

The activities begin with a news i 
conference at 11 a.m. at the Nat- |

Outdoor Track Season A Record-Breaker 

Capped off by a national 
championship in the 400-meter 
relay, the 1981 outdoor season was a 
record breaking year for the 
Northwestern track and filed team. 

Along with placing 12th in the 
nation at the national meet the 
Demons broke 10 school records 
and two Louisiana state collegiate 
records along with having five 
individuals earn All-American 

"Winning the relay at the 
nationals was a great way to end the 
year," said Demon track Coach 
Jerry Dyes in an understatment. 
"We had some ups and downs and 
some frustrations, but when you 
end a year like we were able to this 
year it makes up for the difficult 
part of the season. 

The relay team of Victor Oatis, 
Joe Delaney, Mario Johnson and 
Mark Duper set a school record with 
a 39.32 clocking, which also set a 
state record, breaking the old 
Demon mark of 39.48 set last 

Actually the Demons broke, 
school records in four of the relay 
events this year. Johnson, David 

Fuller, Delaney and Duper set the 
800-meter relay record of 1:22.50 at 
the Texas Relays. The 1600-meter 
relay mark of 3:09.64 was set by 
Johnson, Kenneth Mosley, Keith 
Carter and Windell Bonner in 
Houston while Randy Robinson, 
Billy Green, Vic Bradford and 
Bonner set the 4 X 800 relay record 
of 7:20.70 at the Texas A&M 

"I was pleased with the effort we 
had on the 4 X 800 relay," noted 
Dyes. "The effort that they gave at 
Texas A&M was really satisfying." 
The 4 X 800 is also a state mark. 

Freshman Steve Stockton in the 
javelin and rookies Kevin Johnson 
and John Campbell worked hard on 
the record books in the field events. 
Stockton improved the school 
standard to 252-10 in the javelin to 
place third in the nation. Johnson 
had a best effort of 54-3 in the 
shot, which would have broken the 
school record going into the season. 
Campbell however, improved the 
school mark to 57-0 by the end of 
the year. 

"We feel pretty good about those 
two events," said dyes. "Stockton 

is coming along and is still im- 
proving. At first Johnson was in the 
shadow of Campbell a little, but he 
got much better towards the last 
month of the season. Oof course 
Campbell has unbelievable talent. 
When he adds the strength to go 
with his size he will be able to 
compete internationally." 

Joe Delaney had his best year in 
track for the Demons, setting school 
marks in both 100 and 200-meter 
dashes and qualifying for the 
nationals in both events. Delaney 
lowered the iOO mark to 10.26 in 
the Longhorn Invitational and ran a 
record-breaking 20.64 in the 200- 
meter dash at the Ralph Higgins 
meet at Oklahoma State. 

The other two records were set by 
Carlos Minor in the 400-meter 
hurdles and by Bill Green in the 
1500-meter run. Minor, a junior 
from St. Francisville, ran a 51.99 
in the hurdles at the Texas A&M 
Relays. Green ran a 3:46.45 in the 
1500 at Wichita, Kansas in the TFA- 
USA national meet. 

"I was disappointed that we 
didn't get some half-milers in the 
national meet," stated Dyes. "I 

thought that Carlos in the hurdles 
showed improvement and that billy 
Green was running real well at the 
end of the season." 

So far Dyes has signed five preps 
for next season, three middle 
distance runners, a sprinter and a 
high jumper. "I would like to get 
some distance runners and a long 
jumper," said Dyes about future 
signees for this year. "It's sort of 
late to be looking, but if some of the 
new kids come through next year 
like some did this spring, we should 
be okay." 

Dyes was especially happy this 
year with the work of sprinters 
Mario Johnson and Ray Brown and 
field man Kevin Johnson. "Mario 
and Ray came in to give us the depth 
in the sprinters that you like to 
have," pointed out dyes. "During a 
season you like to have five or six 
sprinters because of the injuries. 
We look for Kevin Johnson to help 
us alot in both the shot put and in 
the discus." 

The Demons had nine seniors on 
the team this spring and will have six 
trackmen returning next season that 
were record-breakers this year.

"We feel like we will be facing a 
strong schedule against state teams, 
plus we are playing some strong 
teams for outside the state," said 
Pierson, who is also the coordinator 
of women's athletics at Nor- 
thwestern. "Delta State will have a- 
strong field of teams and Mercer is a 
Trans America Conference team 

that has strong women's basketball. 
We're also excited about hosting the 
state tournament because there are 
al of good teams in the state and the 
competition is always strong during 
the tournament."

If The "Wreck" Complex is 
supposedly built for the 
students who have payed their 
association fees, why do we 
have to pay more cash to play 
golf on the course we've 
already payed for. 


The Recreation Complex 
Advisory Council, which 
consists of representatives 
from the Student IBody, Staff, 
and Faculty at Northwestern, 
met to establish charges 
necessary for ffiie proper 
operation and maintenance 
incurred through the opening 
of the Golf Course. It was felt 
by the Committee that the 
green fee of $1.00 was 
essential to controlling the use 
and maintaining the fairways 
and greens comprising the 
course. Incidentally , there is a 
Student Golf Association 
membership available to all 
students which takes care of 
the green fee otherwise 


Also why has the swimming 
pool been turned into a kiddie 
pool. There are old ladies and 
little kid yelling at the NSU 
Students telling thiem to give 
them the basketballs and to 
quit splashing water. 


All the old ladies and little 
children at my house are 
constantly hollering, and I 
have found no remedy. 
However, in the case of the 
swimming pool, we have a 
slightly different situation. 
Funds for the construction of 
the Recreation Complex were 
derived equally from student 
contributions and federal 
grant sources. Thin system of 
funding was the only one 
available which could provide 
the necessary monies needed 
for construction of the 
Complex. The use of federal 
funds in projects carries a 
stipulation that these projects 
must be open to the public. 
Such is the case, foir example, 
in the University Library. I 
might point out also that many 
of the ladies and children 
utilizing the swimming pool 
this year are students at the 
University and children of 
those students. It is my un- 
derstanding that there are 
designated periods during 
w hicn time the pool is 
Mailable only to University 
students. We all realize that 
certain complications may 
ar ise, but I think >ve should 
e *press our sentiments of 
Sratitude for having available 
t° us such an excellent 
r «creation facility. 

Folk Festival To Begin July 1 7 

By Rebecca Rhoten 

Although the rhythm is slighty 
different than what is heard on your 
local radio station, the sounds of 
music will be heard at the Nat- 
chitoches Folk Festival July 17, 18, 
and 19. 

The Loggy Bayou Misfits will 
kick-off the festival at the Friday 
night music show. Members of the 
old-time bluegrass group are Gene 
Harris on fiddle, Buddy Sheperd on 
dobro, Sharon Ricketson on rhythm 
guitar, Sandy on bass, Bill Conly Sr. 
on mandolin and his son on banjo. 

This is the first time the group 
will play in Prather Coliseum so it is 
difficult to tell what a dobro is but 
the group promises to be en- 

Dr. Hiram F.Gregory, an- 
thropoligist at NSU, described the 
music played by the Misfits as very 

"They play bluegrass music like it 
ought to be played," said Gregory. 
"Last year our consultant for the 
Festival, Dr. Archie Green of the 
University of Texas, told me the 
best bluegrass groups in the country 
were right here in our own 
backyard. The Loggy Bayou 
Misfits can be considered one of 
those groups Archie was talking 
about," continued Gregory. 

Green said the Festival last year 
was one of most successful first-year 
festivals ever held. The Festival is 
the only major folk festival which is 
held indoors. The Louisiana 
Folklife Center at Northwestern 
NSU considers the heat a problem 
for the patrons, said Johnson, 
spokesman for the center. The 

Festival began last year during the 
"heat wave" and the main con- 
sideration for holding the heritage 
festival indoors was for the comfort 
of the artists and the patrons, said 

The North Louisiana String Band 
will continue the musical festivities 
at 9 p.m. Friday night. This group 
was at the festival last year and 
recorded parts of their performance 
on the commerative album 

produced by the Folklife Center at 
NSU. The album was also released 

as a tribute to Ray Beebe, a former 
Louisiana State Champion fiddler. 

Beebe gave one of his last per- 
formances at last year's Festival on 
stage with the String Band, before 
his death last September. 

John Delafose and the Eunice 
Playboys will finish out the evening 
with their special brand of music 
described as Zodico. The Playboys 
will also be on the stage during the 
daytime programs at 4 p.m. 
Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. 
Saturday night's music show will 
consist of four groups playing 
various types of music. Again, 
John Delafose and his group will 
finish out the show. 

Saturday night's show will begin 
at 8 p.m. with Hadley Castille and 
His Band performing Cajun 
Bluegrass. Castille plays fiddle 
music and this will be his first time 
at NSU. Castille and his band will 
also play during the daytime per- 
formances at 2 p.m. Saturday and 
noon on Sunday. 

Al Ferrier and the Showtimers 
will play their style of Rockabilly 

Blues at 5 p.m. during the daytime 
program and again at 9 p.m. during 
the Saturday Night Music Show. 
Hezekiah and the Houserockers 

continue the evening's stage show 
playing their own special style of 
Delta Blues, a combination of 
dixieland jazz, rock and roll and 
country blues. The group consists 
of three members, Hezekiah Early 
on drums and harmonica, James 
Baker on bass guitar and Pee Wee 
Whittington on slide trombone and ' 

The trio are from Natchez, 
Mississippi, the heart of the Delta 
Region. They will perform their 
blues music at noon on Saturday 
and again at 1:40 p.m. Sunday as 
well as at 10 p.m. during the 
Saturday night show. 

The entertainment is there for the 
having for the July 17th weekend. 
Students who have a capitol A on 
their NSU card (meaning you have 
paid your Student Association fee 
for the summer of 81) will be ad- 
mitted free for all events including 
both daytime activities and both 
Friday and Saturday music shows. 

The general public will be charged 
$2 for the music shows and $3 for 
the daytime programs for adults and 
$1 for (other) students and children 
10 years and older. 

SUGB Makes Offer to Hall and O ate s 

The Student Union Governing 
Board has made an offer for Darvle 
Hall and John Oates. The offer for 
dates between September 28 and 
October 2, is pending the acceptance 
and approval of the contracts and 

Hall and Oates have four songs 
that have became hits off their new 
album "Voices." "Kiss On My 
List" off the "Voices" album went 
to number two. The album 
"Voices" has been on Billboards 
Top 40 LP and Tapes chart for 47 
weeks. "You Make My Dream" 
which come from the same album is 
currently number 5. 

2nd Vice-President Burton 
McClendon states this is an offer 
pending clarification of the rider, 
which is a list of production and 
hospitality wants (i.e. food, drink 
dressing rooms, power) which can 
be arbitrated. 

If the offer and contracts ae 
acceptable the concert will be 
scheduled during homecoming 

McClendon states that a preferred 
date would be Friday October 2, but 
that any date would be acceptable 
since it falls during homecoming 

The reasons for an early fall 
concert is that the availability of 
musical acts is greater in early fall. 
The main objective is to provide the 
students with an opportunity for an 
early fall concert. 

McClendon futher states that this 
will not wipe out plans for a 
Christmas concert.

Board also has booked The Toones 
a new wave band from San Fancisco 
for September 16 in the ballroom.

NSU Is Dying And It's Your Fault 

... The Word is Inside View 

On July 12th through the 14th, Northwestern will be invaded by the first 
wave of future Demons in the annual Inside View program sponsored by the 
High School Relations department. 

Inside View is one of the better programs that NSU sponsors in that it 
serves several helpful purposes. First and foremost, it provides a place for 
the incoming freshmen to come and registar early and become familiar with 
the NSU campus. 

It also allows the students to meet new people and to be able to come to 
Northwestern and already know someone instead of coming here and not 
knowing a soul. However, although Inside View is a great program with a 
tremendous deal of success behind it, there are probably a few things that 
should be improved with the program. 

First, the freshman is treated as though he were a sophomore in high 
school instead of an incoming collegian. For some reason once the Inside 
Viewers get into their little orientati on groups, they are immediatly thrown 
into childish games to (apparently) get them familiar with the other people 
in their groups. As a former Inside Viewer myself, I was not to excited 
about playing the alphabet game. Coming from a high school of 1400 
people I pretty well knew the alphabet. Of course not all of the groups 
played the alphabet game. 

There was the M&M game too. That was where you were offered an 
almost infinite amount of M&M's and the more you got, the more tidbits 
about yourself you had to tell about. 

There was also one more complaint worth mentioning, and that one was 
that there was no free time for the NSU— Initiates to mill around the 
campus and look at the buildings, fields, and even more important the 
Student Union. Every second of the day was accounted for by the program 

Of course, all of these complaints may sound petty, but first impressions, 
especially at a small school like Northwestern, are extrememly important. 

... The Word is Concerts 

Now that the SUGB has sent an offer sheet to Hall and Oates, and if they 
accept the offer, NSU will be blessed with its second "big name" act in less 
than a year. (Last spring of course the SUGB gave us Chris Cross when he 
was at his peak.) And this is not too bad for a small town college and its 
activities board. It almost makes you look with excited expectation to this 
year's Christmas Festival. 

Remembering last year's Festival night concert, which was certainly one 
to forget, one must hope that this year's draw will be the third " big name" 
to hit Natchitoches in the past year. Although the winter months are the 
hardest months in which to book a concert appearance, if somebody got on 
the ball early enough then maybe we could enjoy a big night. 

I wonder if the Northwestern students wouldn't mind spending an extra 

dollar or two at the gate for the privalege of enjoying a better concert than 

the one Texas Tradit ion gave us? Then maybe the SUGB could send out 

offer sheets to some really big names and just cram the people into Prather 

with selective promotional ads, the SUGB could sell advance tickets and 

probably make a bundle. 

I wonder what Pink Floyd is doing Decern er 5th?.... 

What would you say if I said that 
Northwestern is going down the 
tubes and it's all your fault? 

Ridiculous! Stupid! There's no 
way! It's not my fault, so it must be 
that guy over there! Wrong, wrong, 
wrong, and wrong. 

The fact of the matter is that it is 
your fault, it's my fault, it's the 
faculty's fault, it's the ad- 
minstration's fault, and it. is even 
the alumni's fault. 

First let us establish a few things. 
Northwestern is in fact, dying on the 
vine. Why? The reasons are 
countless, but, for starters, we don't 
offer a single major program that is 
not offered by one of the larger 
institutions in the state. 

For years our primary emphases 
have been on the schools of 
education and nursing. So!!! Over 
20 other colleges in this state have 
schools of education and a large 
number have nursina programs as 

Our other colleges have outgrown 
education and nursing during the 
past decade, and yet, if you were to 
ask a college prospect what he 
thought about NSU, he'd more than 
likely reply, "Well, I'd probably go 
there if 1 wanted to be a teacher or a 
nurse." We are stereotyped and we 
don't know how to change our 

The result is that fewer and fewer 
high school graduates are choosing 
Northwestern as the place for them, 
which can only mean that even- 
tually, it will not be practical to keep 
this institution open. 

Over the past decade, the second- 
oldest state-funded institution of 
higher learning (that's us, if you 
didn't know) has seen its enrollment 

slide to an abyssmal low. Naturally, 
that drop off is blamed on 
decreasing high school enrollments, 
a lower birth rate, and all that jazz, 
but why is it that those things are 
only affecting Northwestern. 

That's right-only Northwestern. 
During the same 10-year span 
Northeast, USL, and McNeese ha\e 
all enjoyed phenomenal growth. 
NLU now boasts an enrollment of 
over 10,000. Southwestern is now 
the second largest school in the state 
with over 14,000 students, while 
McNeese has climbed over the 7,000 
mark for the first time in its history. 

Well, all of those schools are in 
metro areas, you might say. How 
about our old nemesis Louisiana 
Tech? It's not in a metro area and it 
also boasts 10,000 students. 

Yeah, but they are all serviced by 
Interstate highways. Sorry, 
Nicholls State isn't serviced by an 
interstate and it, too, has grown 
significantly during the last 10 

Why not Northwestern then? 
That is a difficult and complex 
question to answer, but let it suffice 
to say that the decision makers of 
the past made serious mistakes 
about the future of Northwestern, 
and those mistakes are costing NSU 
dearly. Now, no one seems to know 
what to do to slow the downward 

Many were happy to release the 
summer enrollment figures which 
showed significant growth for 
Northwestern. The 26 percent 
increase over last summer's 
enrollment is misleading, however, 
when it is taken into consideration 
that the increase is due primarily to 

the Professional Improvement 
Program for teachers. 

Northwestern is hurting and it is 
going to take a concerted effort of 
everyone, from the lowliest 
freshman to the oldest alumnus, to 
rebuild Northwcstern's reputation 
and establish our school as a 
credible institution of higher 

I'm not going to try to tell the 
adminstration and the faculty what 
to do about the slide, because they 
will fight to keep this place open, if 
for no other reason than to keep 
their own positions secure. The 
survival instinct is strong in 
humans, and when threatened, they 
fight back. 

But how can the student (and 
future alumnus) help? The ways are 
countless, but the simplest is to 
leave this institution with a good 
education and make people notice 
you in the outside world. If you 
leav e people with a good impression 
of Northwestern grads, they will, in 
turn, look for more Northwestern 

There are other ways that you can 
help, too, before you graduate, and 
the most obvious is to show a little 
pride in your school. Does this 
sound like a pep talk? Well, maybe 
it is, but think about it. 

You see, we take and take from 
this school, but do we ever think of 
what we can do to help, to give 
something back? For the most part, 
the answer is no. 

College students are strange 
animals. After years (yes years, 
I've been here awhile) of ob- 
servation I have come to the con- 
clusion that the typical college 

student is not an adult, but rather a 
child prolonging h:;s childhood by 
playing an adult only on occasion. 

Many college students run home 
to Mama every weekend, thus 
reverting to childhood, and never 
really establish a life of their own at 
their school. Others never work and 
have never really held a job while 
others prolong their stay to keep 
from having to fac<: the real world (I 
should know, I've been at it for over 
a half-a-decade). 

You picked this place as the 
college for you for some reason or 
another, and now you are here. 
Make the most of your stay and get 
everything out of if. you can. Make 
a life of your own and eventually, 
you will develop pride in yourself 
and your school. 

Why? Because you have made 
this place yours. Your pride will 
show, and others v/ill be impressed, 
and in turn, will look at Nor- 
thwestern as the school for them. 

Get involved! Wlhen the fall rolls 
around go to all of the ballgames, 
the plays, the pep rallies, the 
concerts, and the like. Nor- 
thwestern can be your home if your 
make it your home:. After all these 
years, it's become ray home and I let 
people know it. 

Try it! You may be surprised at 
just how much fun Northwestern 
really is. If you do , you could be a 
part of the faction that saves 
Northwesten fro>m the vicious 
vultures that are ready to jump on 
our dying carcass , and insure this 
institution's security for another 

Come on! Northwestern needs

...You'll have to excuse Don 
Hatley if he walks past you with a 
blank smile on his face during the 
next 12 days. And pardon Jim 
Johnson for keeping a chaw of 
tobacco in his jaw while he's eating. 

Understand, these guys are 
suffering from an obsession. Don't 
mention the phrase "last-minute 
details" unless you want to hear a 
wild scream. 

Their obsession is next weekend's 
Natchitoches Folk Festival. Hatley 
is festival chairman and Johnson 
does all of the publicity and much of 
the public relations work for the 

There are innumerable other 
people who make valuable con- 
tributions to the success of the 
festival, but Hatley and Johnson are 
the two most visible. 

Jim's idea of a party is one where 
everybody sits on the living room 
floor and-brace yourself-stuffs 
envelopes with festival ticket 

And Hatley thinks a night out on 
the town involves speaking to the 
Winnfield Lions Club. 

It wasn't just dumb luck that over 
12,000 people showed up at last 
year's festival. Nearly a year's 
worth of planning led to the suc- 
cessful first edition and the process 
hasn't stopped since. 

Of course, all Hatley, Johnson 
and crew do is coordinate the event. 
They'll tell you that the real stars are 

the musicians and craftsmen who 
make the weekend a real celebration 
of folk art. 

How can you not smile at the 
thought of a band called Hezikiah 
and the House Rockers? When Pee 
Wee Whittington cuts loose on the 
trombone, you just naturally start 
to tap your feet. When David Smith 
transforms a hickory stick into an 
ornately-carved African walking 
cane, it's impossible not to ap- 
preciate the achievement. 

These are the kind of people who 
will be in the spotlight next 
weekend. But the loudest applause 
should go to Hatley, Johnson and 

Unless, of course, they try to 

...Talk about getting off on the 
right foot and you're remiss if you 
don't mention new Student 
Government Association president 
Joe Stamey. 

Stamey endured a lot of bitterness 
after he took over from Cliff Lopez 
this spring after a hotly-contested 
election. Some of his former 
collegues in the SGA Senate were 
less than helpful during the weeks 
after the voting. 

But the hot summer months have 
apparently cooled things off and the 
SGA seems to be functioning rather 
well, although some in the Stamey 
administration admit it could be the 
calm before a storm.

The significant fact now is that 
the SGA is functioning. It meets 
informally each Wednesday 
evening, conducting a minimal 
amount of business but providing a 
forum for issues and ideas. 

In past years, the SGA did next to 
nothing from May until September. 
Executives were liike royalty-if they 
wanted something done, it got done. 
If they wanted to do nothing, which 
was more often the case, nobody 

There were nc> meetings to allow 
students to voice opinions and make 
suggestionsor complaints. If the 
SGA found out about a problem, 
action sometimes was taken-but 
student input was, missing.

the summer business sessions, and 
he's established the fact that his 
administration is seeking an "ac- 
tion-Senate" to replace the "ego- 

Now, if the rest of the SGA can

spirit, cut down on the infighting 
and pull in the same general 
direction, we might get something

Miller, Grebey or Moffett. They

There is an A 1 Miller who plays 
for Atlanta, a Randy Moffitt who is 
a San Francisco Giant, and a Steve 
Garvey on the Los Angeles 
Dodgers, but that's as close as I 

Come to think about it, looking 
in the Sunday paper I couldn't find 
any current statistics for those guys, 
either. Haven't been able to for a 
few weeks. 

But you know something? It's 
getting to the r>oint where I really 
don't care, and I get the impression 
I'm not alone in my feelings. 

Enough of the charade. This 
baseball strike is ridiculous. Isn't 
this America's pastime we're talking 

Maybe we'd better put that in 
past tense. If I re member, there was 
a strike in 1974 and another one in 
1980 during spring training. Hey, 
according to the rules of the game, 
three strikes and you're out. 

Get the message? This was 
America's past we were talking 

What's happening now isn't 
worth discussing. That's what Rusty

N alley Envisions Rec Complex as Country Club for Students 

By Mike Gallien 
Sauce Assistant Editor 

(Last of a series) 

"What we want eventually is a 
country club for the students," said 
Northwestern Recreation Complex 
director Scott Nalley on the future 
of the facility. "We want the best 
of everything for the students, as 
well as the Natchitoches com- 
munity, to enjoy." 

With that goal in mind, Nalley 
and the complex staff continue to 
work to complete, update, and 
renovate the facility to make it the 
best of its kind anywhere. 

The complex is near completion 
with the exception of wrap-up work 
on the golf course, which will 

continue over the next two years. 
The course will, however, remain 
open during that work. 

Final steps are being taken to 
complete the driving range, which 
rests between the first fairway and 
the No. 4 green. The range will be 
opened as soon as the rental 
equipment (balls, drivers, etc.) 

The pro shop will be completely 
stocked with golf and tennis ac- 
cessories in the near future, as well 
as a complete stock of rentals for 
both sports. 

To further encourage the use of 
all of the complex facilities, the 
complex offers memberships to all 
interested parties. Full-time NSU 
students are already considered 
members, as well as part-time 

students with a rec complex ID. 

Students are assessed SI 5 at the 
beginning of each semester (S7.50 
during the summer term), plus a SI 
greens fee for one-time use of the 
golf course. Students are also given 
the option of paying a once-a- 
semester fee of S10 for membership 
in the Student Golf Association, 
which includes unlimited use of the 
course, as well as the chipping and 
putting greens. 

"We hope to eventually do away 
with the greens fee for the 
students," Nalley stated. "Right 
now, we want to get the serious 
student golfers out here ad let them 
learn about golfing etiquette and the 
like. The fee is a way to son of 
separate the serious golfers from the 

Memberships for non-student-* 
over 1 8 are S20 a month for the four 
summer months for swimming and 
tennis or S22.50 a month for 12 
months, which includes golf. 

Family memberships are S25 a 
month for swimming and tenniv 
during the summer months or S35 a 
month year-round for golf, tennis, 
and swimming. 

Northwestern faculty and staff 
members bet a reduced rate for 
memberships. Fees for summer 
tennis and swimming are Si 2.50 or 
S17.50 year-round for golf, tennis, 
and swimming for faculty and staff 

Non-members are also welcome 
to use all of the Rec Complex 
facilities for one-time fees. Greens 
fee for the golf course is S5 for non- 

members, while swimming fees are 
S2. Fees for use of the tennis court» 
are S2 per person for an hour and a 
half block of time. 

'"These fees are an absolute 
necessity." Nalley stated. "•People 
don't realize the tremendous ex- 
pense o! operating a facility like 

"VVe want to encourage people to 

use the complex." Nalley con- 
tinued. "We have a lot of people 
swimming, but nobody really takes 
advantage of the tennis courts. 
They are some of the finest courts in 
the area. 

"Mom of all. we want to en- 
courage the students to use the 
facilty because they helped build 
it." Nallev closed. 

Organizations Consider 'Adopting' Folk Museum 

Several organizations from 
Natchitoches and Northwestern 
State University are considering 
"adopting" Bayou Folk Museum in 
Cloutierville as a special project, 
allowing them to take an active part 
in the operation of the historic 
facility now owned by NSU. 

Representatives of some of the 
oranizations met recently in 
Cloutierville to discuss their in- 
volvement in the museum's 
operations with John M. Price and 
Lucille Carnahan, co-directors of 
the two-story structure which was 
once the home of famed author 
Kate Chopin. 

"Having the organizations in- 
terested in Bayou Folk Museum will 

allow us to develop new programs 
and to improve existing services," 
stated Price. "With the help of the 
organizations, the facility can be 
better maintained, and assistance to 
touring groups can be enhanced." 

One of the organizations in- 
terested in Bayou Folk Museum is 
the Lesche Club of Natchitoches, a 
literary club for women. Their ' 
interest is based on Miss Chopin's 
literary accomplishments. Miss 
Chopin lived at Bayou Folk for four 
or five years in the late 1800's, and 
many of her best stories were set in 
the Cloutierville and Cane River 

NSU organizations which have 

expressed interested in the facility 
include the Purple Jackets, Theta 
Chi Fraternity, The Interfraternity 
Council, Home Economics Club 
and the Campus Women's Club. 

Mrs. Carnahan said the Bayou 
Folk Homemakers Club in 
Cloutierville has supported the 
facility for many years and will 
continue to do so. The museum is 
currently staffed by volunteers for 
the Cloutierville area. 

Bayou Folk Museum is open 
every day except Monday. Hours 
are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday 
through Friday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

Saturday and Sunday. Admission is 
$2 for adults and $1 for children. 

The famous hand-made brick 
house in Cloutierville was donated 
to the NSU Foundation in 1979 by 
Mildred McCoy of Cloutierville. 
She purchase the building in 1964 
and restored the home herself, 
opening it as Bayou Folk Museum 
in 1965. 

Now a leading tourist attraction, 
the museum houses valuable ar- 
chival material of Kate Chopin, 
antebellum history and culture, 
Cane River hisory and President 
Abraham Lincoln. 

A new comedy 
for everyone 
who ever wanted 
to do to the System 
what the System's been 
doing to them.

Hall of Fame Inducts Eight 

Eight former greats from around 
the state of Louisiana were inducted 
into the Louisiana Sports Hall of 
Fame in ceremonies held on the 
Northwestern campus Saturday, 
June 27. 

The most recent inductees, which 
brings the total membership in the 
Hall of Fame to 76, include football 
greats Jerry Stovall of LSU and 
Tommy Mason of Tulane, 
basketball stars Willis Reed of 
Grambling and Glynn Saulters of 
Northeast, major league pitcher 
Howie Pollet, high school football 
coach Faize Mahfouz, LSU all- 
around athlete Buddy Blair and 
Loyola track and field standout 
Emmett Toppino. 

The induction banquet was the 
highlight of the day-long activities ' 
which also included a morning press 
conference, a golf tournament and a 
reception for tours of the newly 
expanded Hall of Fame in NSU's 
Prather Coliseum. 

Six of the eight new members 
were present for the banquet which 
attracted over 450 people, while 
Pollet and Toppino were honored 

Pollet, who pitched in the major 
leagues for 14 years, gained fame as 
a member of the outstanding St. 
Louis Cardinal teams of the 1940's. 
His major league career mark was 
131-116 and he twice won at least 20 
games in a season. He was 21-10 in 
1946 when the Cardinals won the 
World Series. 

Former St. Louis teammate 
Harry "The Hat" Walker was on 
hand to offer personal remarks 
about Pollet while Pollet's brother, 
Lloyd Pollet of New Orleans, was 
present to accept the Hall of Fame 

Toppino, like Pollet a native of 
New Orleans, gained fame at 
Loyola as a world-class sprinter in 
the 1930's. Hall of Fame member 
Sid Bowman, who competed against

Toppino, spoke of his former rival. 

Toppino ran a leg on the United 
States' 400-meter relay team that 
won a Gold Medal in the 1932 
Olympics. Toppino equalled the 
world record of 6.2 seconds in the 
60-yard dash six times in his career 
and tied the world mark of 10.4 in 
the 100-meter dash. Toppino's Hall 
of Fame plaque was accepted by his 
widow, Mrs. Fanny Toppino. 

Former Northeast basketball star 
Glynn Saulters is the only Louisiana 
collegiate player to compete in the 
Olympics as he was part of the 
winning United States team in 1968. 
Still the holder of 15 basketball 
records at Northeast, Saulters once 
scored 5 1 points in one game. 

Former Northeast basketball 
coach Lenny Fant offered personal 
remarks about on of the top players 
he ever coached before Saulters 
accepted his plaque. 

Buddy Blair is one of the top all- 
around athletes to ever play at 
Louisiana State. He helped the 1933 
Tiger track team to the national title 
by throwing the javelin and scored 
20 points on the basketball floor 
when LSU won the national title in 

Blair was also a baseball player at 
LSU and after graduation played 
professional baseball for five years. 
Blair is the fourth member of the 
five-man track team in 1933 to be 
inducted into the Hall of Fame. 
Remarks about his outstanding 
career were given by former 
teammate Major General George 

After a standout football career 
at Tulane, in which he earned All- 
American honors as a senior, 
Tommy Mason was one of the first 
stars of the Minnesota Vikings in 
the NFL. Mason ended his

Hall of Fame Tour 

Inductee Faize Mahfouz (seated) and guests tournament, and banquet 
tour the Louisiana Sports Hail of Fame in 
Prather Coliseum Saturday, June 27. The 
Hall's annual induction concluded a day of 
activities including a press conference, golf 

Mahfouz, one of 
the state's top high school football coaches, 
was one of eight former-greats honored at the 

professional career with over 4,000 
yards rushing and 2,000 yards in 
pass receptions. 

Mason, who was joined at the 
ceremonies by his wife, former 
Olympic gymnast Cathy Rigby 
Mason, was introduced by Jimmy 
Austin, his prep coach at Lake 
Charles High School. 

Willis Reed earned his fame by 
leading Grambling to a national 
championship and then leading the 
New York Knicks to World 
Championships twice while playing 
professional basketball. 

Reed was NBA Rookie of the 
Year when he broke into the league 
and he made the all-star team for 
five consecutive years. Now the 
head coach at Creighton University, 
Reed was joined at the banquet by 
his college coach Fred Hobdy. 

Faize Mahfouz became the first 
high school coach to be inducted 
into the Hall of Fame. Mahfouz 
coached at Eunice High School for 

22 years, enjoying 20 winning 
seasons. He was later an assistant 
coach at Southeastern Louisiana 
before closing his career at New 
Iberia High School. 

Mahfouz was known for his 
offensive innovation as he was the 
first coach in the state to install the 
wing-T and split-T formations. 

Jack Doland, the former football 
coach and now president at Mc- 
Neese State University, was on hand 
to offer personal comments about 

LSU head football coach Jerry 
Stovall was also inducted. Stovall, 
who was introduced by his former 
coach and now LSU Athletic 

Director Paul Dietzel, was an Ail- 
American running back for the 
Tigers in 1962 when he placed 
second in balloting for the Heisman 
Trophy. Stovall was selected to the 
All-Southeastern Conference team 
three years and later was an All-Pro 
defensive back for the St. Louis 

The Louisiana Sports Hall of

NSU's Prather Coliseum. Hand- 
painted color portraits of all 76 
members of the Hall of Fame along 
with baseballs, jerseys, helmets, golf 
clubs, baseball uniforms and other 
memorabilia are on permanent 
display in the Hall of Fame.

Steve Stockton were named to the

Athletic Congress National Junior 

The two Demon track and field 
standouts qualified for the team 
when they placed first and second in 
the TAC national juniors meet. 
Stockton, who was earlier named as 
a Division I All-America in track 
with a third place finish at the 
NCAA meet in Baton Rouge, won 
the TAC meet with a throw of 245- 
6. Campbell took second in the shot 
with a monster toss of 58-6 which 
broke and NSU school record.

Ms. Ginger Parrish, Coordinator 
of Intramurals at NSU, announced 
her resignation effective Sept. 4, 
when she will accept the position of 
Assistant Director of Student 
Activities for Intramurals at LSU at 

Ms. Parrish has served in her 
position at NSU since August, 1978. 

since that time participation in 
intramurals has increased by 10%, 
and the variety, availability, and 
quality of intramurals has im- 

Ms. Parrish attributed part of her 
success to the students who voted 
themselves a $2 intramural fee, in 

the Spring of 1979. That money 
contributed to Ms. Parrish's 
convictions that "activity, not just 
competitive sports, were for 
everyone," and the Intramural 
building was the one building on 
campus that was exclusively for the 

"Of all the things I'll miss, it will 
be the students at NSU, they are not 
just students, they are friends. I'm 
sorry to leave, it was an opportunity 
for me professionally that I couldn't 
pass up". 

No replacement has been named 
for Ms. Parrish, and Graduate 
Students will fill in until the position 

is filled. 

SUGB Books New Wave Band 

New wave music comes to 
Northwestern in the form of one of 
the hottest San Francisco new wave 
groups , the Toons. The Student 
Union Governing Board on Sep- 
tember 16 will have the Toons in 
concert in the ballroom. The Toons 
are another in a series of the cof-* 
feehouse concerts the SUGB has 
been bringing to Northwestern in an 
attempt to satisfy varying music 

The Toons have appeared in San 

Francisco at th Great American 
Music Hall plus colleges such as 
UCLA. They have also played the 
Troubador in Los Angeles where the 
Eagles, Linda Rondstadt, and 

several other pop music stars have! 
performed. They have appeared 1 
with such stars as Christopher! 
Cross, Maureen McGovern, and 
B.B. King. 

The Toon's show has built a large 
following in Los Angeles. "Their 
musical material, much which is 
original and some clever com- 
mercial stuff, is beautifully selected 
and impeccably performed. The 
Toons, who bounce around the 
stage have a freshness to their show 
that makes an audience feel it has 
gotten something very special," says 
Phillip Elwood of the "San 
Francisco Examiner." 

Northwestern President, Dr. 
Rene J. Bienvenu has announced his 
retirement from the position ef- 
fective January 31, 1982. 

Bienvenu made the an- 
nouncement during the July regular 
monthly meeting of the State Board 
for Colleges and Universities in 
Baton Rouge. 

Bienvenu stated that, "On 
January 31, I will have served for 
four full years as president of 
Northwestern, and it is my sincere 
feeling that most of the goals that I 
established upon assuming the 
presidency have been ac- 

Bienvenu also added, "In 1977 
(just before he assumed the office) I 
said in five years I was going to 
retire; I kind of program my life." 

The NSU president said that he 
had a committment to himself. It 
was time for a vacation. The office 
of the president is a year around job 
often times seven days a week. 
Bienvenu said that he worked hard 
to accomplish all the things that his 
administration could accomplish in 
these four years and by sticking to 
their original plans, the jobs were 

"I feel good about the Univer- 
sity," Bienvenu stated, "and 

especially in the area of academics 
and academic standards." 

Amidst rumors that he retired 
under pressure from the State Board 
of Colleges and Universities, Dr. 
Bienvenu was quick to dispel those 
thoughts and he stated that there 
was no pressure whatsoever f rom 
the Board and that he probably 
enjoys a better relationship with the 
members of the State Board than do 
most of the other niversity 

"There is no degree of 
disagreement between any Board 
member and myself." Bienvenu 

Bienvenu, 58, was named acting 
president of Northwestern in 1977 
and assumed office February 1, 

Dr. Bienvenu, who was a faculty 
member and administrator at NSU 
for some 27 years before becoming 
the University's 13th president; is a 
nationally known scientific 
researcher and writer. He briefly 
held the post of assistant dean of the 
School of Allied Health as the 
Louisiana State University Medical 
Center in Shreveport. 

Before moving to the LSU 
position, Bienvenu was dean of the 
College of Science and Technology 

at NSU for 10 years and was 
chairman of the NSU Department 
of Microbology from 1960-1967. 

A native of colfax, Dr. Bienvenu 
had served as a microbologist at 
Confederate Memorial Hospital in 
Shreveport and as a chemist from 
Leland Hamner Company in 
Houston before joining the Nor- 
thwestern staff in 1950. 

The retiring NSU president : 
earned a B.S. degree in zoology' 
from LSU in 1944 and M.S. degree 
in bacteriology from LSU in 1949. 
He received his doctorate in 
microbology from the University of 
Texas in 1957. 

Bienvenu, who has also studied at 
the University of Pennsylvania, 
Cornell University, and the Oak 
Ridge Institute for Nuclear Studies, 
has taught as a visiting professor at 
the University of Texas. 

Dr. Bienvenu has conducted 
research on brucellosis and has 
received nationwide attention. He is 
the author of several articles for 
scientific and scholarly journals and 
has delivered papers on his extensive 
medical research at professional 
meetings throughout the United 

Dr. Bienvenu was recently elected 
president of the State Colleges and 
Universities Presidents' Council. 

Dr. Bienvenu also holds mem- 
bership in a number of professional, 
honorary, and civic organizations 
including the American Society for 
Microbiology, Louisiana Academy 
of Sciences, Beta Beta Beta, Sigma 
XI, Phi Kappa Phi, and Phi Eta 

In a brief meeting of the Board of 
Trustees following Bienvenu's 
announcement, the search com- 
mittee established October 15th as 
the deadline for receiving ap- 
plications for the presidency. 
According to one member of the 
search committee, Wiley H. Sharp, 
Jr., of Hammond, the board 
president, a new Northwestern 
president should be appointed by 

Bienvenu, in his retirement 
statement, said his decision to leave 
Northwestern and higher education 
"was made with mixed emotions. I 
have devoted more than 30 years of 
my life to Northwestern, and I love 
the institution and the people who 
are a part of it.... the faculty, 
students, administrators, alumni, 
and friends of the university." 

Bienvenu also added that, "...its 
been a wonderful experience" and 
that he thoroughly enjoyed working 
with everybody connected to the 

Class Pictures Slated 

SGA Approves Supreme Court Justices 

Student portrait or "class" 
pictures for the NSU yearbook will 
be made on the Natchitoches 
campus for two weeks beginning 
September 21 and on the Shreveport 
campuses for one week beginning 
Oct. 5. 

Appointments must be made in 
advance for scheduling the pictures 
with the photographer during these 
three weeks, according to Jim 
McKellar, POTPOURRI editor. 
"The photographer will not return 
for make-up shots," he said. 

Individual students can make 
appointments on the Natchitoches 
campus at the POTPOURRI office, 
Room 227, Keyser Hall, during the 
afternoons from 1 to 5 p.m. through 
Friday, Sept. 18. 

Many students made ap- 
pointments during registration, 
McKellar said. "All students are 
reminded to keep their ap- 
pointments promptly at the 

scheduled times," he said. 

In Shreveport, students can make 
appointments beginning Monday, 
Sept. 21 in offices at Warrington 
Place and at Kings Highway 
campuses. Nursing students and 
faculty-administrators should watch 
for posters for exact offices and 
hours for appointments. Pictures of 
both students and faculty members 
are to be made by the same 
photographer there. 

"There is no charge to students 
for having their pictures made of the 
yearbook," McKellar said. 
"However, students will receive 
proofs of their pictures and may 
order directly from the 

Group pictures of Natchitoches

Try outs For Play Slated 

Tryouts for the first show of the 
university theatre season will be held 
in room 320 of the S.U.B. on 
Wednesday Sept. 16, from 5 p.m. to 
9 p.m. and on Thursday Sept. 17, 
from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

DINNER, by George Kaufman and 
Moss Hart, was known as one of the 
best comedies of the 1930's. 
Because of its continued success it is 
still considered one of the best 
comedies and is still playing in the 
American Theatre. 

According to Dr. E. Black, Head 
of the Speech and Theatre 
Department there are parts for 
everyone, major parts and minor 
parts. No previous experience 
required. Casting will be an- 
nounced Friday morning of the 
18th. Rehearsals will begin Monday

Two new Student Supreme Court 
Justices were sworn in, and the 
Election Committee for 
Homecoming and State Fair Courts 
were approved at the first meeting 
of the semester of the Student 
Government Association, on Aug. 

The SGA approved Christee 
Hyde and Carl Jones to fill two 
vacant positions on the previously 
all white, all male Student Supreme 
Court. The two justices were then 
sworn in, and their terms will expire 
at the next election of the SGA 

Diana Kemp, Commissioner of 
Elections submitted four of five 
Election Committee officials for 
approval by the SGA. Approved 
were: Darleen Hay, Cliff Lopez, 
Helene Morgan, and Vicki 

Ms. Kemp left one vacant spot for 
an interested freshman. 

Other topics discussed were the 
proposed Free Speech Alley, the 
resignation of President Bienvenu 
and Ginger Parrish, and 
Homecoming and State Fair. 

"You get ud and iust tell it like it 

is,," said David Stamey, Chairman 
of Public Relations, in an attempt to 
describe the Free Speech Alley. The 
alley, successful in other univer- 
sities, gives students a chance to 
speak freely on issues that concern 
them, a sort of person-to-person 
variation of the KNWD radio show 
"What's On Your Mind." 

Clifton Bolgiano will moderate 
the Alley, to be held in the Student 
Union Courtyard, and is expected to 
be in operation by October first. 

Dean Bosarge spoke on the 
subject of President Bienvenu's Jan. 
1 retirement from NSU, and assured 
the SGA that Bienvenu would 
remain active during his remaining 
months as NSU. 

"Anytime you have a Presidential 
change in the middle of the 
year... there is extreme sensitivity on 
the part of the students on what 
needs to be changed...," said 
Bosarge about who will replace 
Bienvenu. Bosarge expressed his 
belief that the State Board of 
Regents, responsible for selecting 
the new president, would allow 
some sort of student input on who 
that person will be. 

In the wake of the President's 

resignation, Ginger Parrish, 
Coordinator of Intramurals 
resigned effective Sept. 4. Ms. 
Parrish served from August of 1978, 
and will be accepting the position of 
Assistant Director of Student 
Activities for Intramurals at LSU in 

A tentative Homecoming Week 
schedule was released by David 
Stamey, Homecoming Director. 
The schedule is: Mon., Sept. 28— 
Hall and Oates Concert; Tues.— 
50's Car Show and James Dean 
Film Fes; Wed.— Meet the Team 
Beer Bust and Dance; Thurs.— Will 
Smith Concert; and Fri.— 
Homecoming Parade, leading to 
Pep Rally and Dance on the River 

Stamey reported that State Fair 
tee shirts have been ordered and will 
go on sale approximately three 
weeks before the game. 

Diana Kemp announced that 
Homecoming Court nominations 
opened on Aug. 24, and will close 
Sept. 9, with elections to be held 
Sept. 16. 

Shreveport relations were 
discussed, although the Warrington 
Representatives were not present. 

"Those people have needs, we went 
up there... and they have on 
regrigerator per floor and it is jam 
packed...," said vice-president 
Kevin Bartholomew about the 
Shreveport campuses. 

Plans for a trip to investigate 
areas of need were made by several 
SGA members. 

The proposed Legal Service one 
again became a subject of 
discussion, when Peyton Cun- 
ningham of the Students Right 
Committee announced that the 
sevice should be in use by October 

The Legal Service would provide 
free legal aid, advice and counseling 
to students at NSU. Area lawyers 
will be available at scheduled times 
during the month for sessions with 

In other business, an SGA 
Workshop was slated for Sept. 12. 
President Joe Stamey explained that 
the purpose of the workshop was to 
set goals and objectives for the SGA 
in the upcoming year, to discuss 
important issues, to get better 
acquinted with the members, as well 
as to paint the SGA office.

ALOC Moves From Keyser Hall to Caldwell Hall 

For many of us, college is one of 
the largest challenges in life. 
Double that challenge with the 
obstacle of learning the language of 
a foreign institute, and many of us 
would probably reconsider higher 

American Language and 
Orientation Center (ALOC) at 
Northwestern has for two years 
helped foreign students from over 
18 countries master English which 
later enabled them to attend the 

Headed by Marion Nesom, 
Associate Professor of English at 
NSU, ALOC moved from the 
Keyser building to the second flor of 
Caldwell Hall this summer. 

"We moved to Caldwell for 
space," said Nesom, "and with 

volunteer help, spent three weeks 
cleaning, painting and getting the 
Center ready for the Fall semester." 

Before ALOC was established, 
foreign students were required to 
present a Test of English as a 
Foreign Language (TOEFL) for 
entrance consideration. 

"Up to two years ago, NSU 
couldn't accept foreign un- 
dergraduate students with TOEFL 
scores under the 450 level." Nesom 

This was a hardship on the 
students who had gone through the 
processing of preliminary and 
university applications, translated 
transcripts and detailed financial 

With this in mind, NSU officials 
decided to establish an Intensive 

Engligh program, and Nesom was 
named director. 

ALOC was then established in the 
Fall semester of 1979 as a three tier 
program consisting of Beginning, 
Intermediate and Advanced English

of 1980 all foreign students entering 
Northwestern, with or without 
TOEFL scores, were tested for their 
efficiency in English. 

They were then placed in the 
regular academic studies or one of 
ALOC's three levels. 

In the Beginning level the student 
enrolls in three ALOC English 
courses, which total to ap- 
proximately 22 hours a week. 

The Intermeduate level also 
consists of three English courses, 

but the student, as advised, may 
take an additional academic course 
outside of ALOC. 

The Advanced Level permits 
students to schedule their ALOC 
English courses, in accordance with 
their competency, and up to two 
other academic courses. 

The outcome of this program, 
some of ALOC staff members feel, 
will be the influx of highly 
motivated students, and a larger 
student enrollment. 

"Although ALOC is short of 
funds, we hope that as the program 
continues to grown the university 
will provide adequate staffing," 
said Nesom. 

ALOC welcomes all visitors and 
volunteers at the center on the 
second floor of Caldwell Hall. 


Not Just a Job, 
an Adventure 

Cheerleading at Northwestern is 
more than just another organization 
to get involved in. It has to be 
accepted as a challenge to everyone 
on the squad. 

Cheerleading once regarded as 
entertainment is fast developing into 
a sport of its own. The NSU squad 
is now composed of seven females 
and three males. They are Laurie 
Weaver, Darlene Brown, Laurie 
Martin, Kim Berry, Teresa 
Peterson, Allison Arthur, Cindy 
Tuttle co-captain, Harlan Harvey 
captain, Bobby Cleveland, and Troy 
Davidson. According to Steve 
Brown, the advisor for the demon 
cheerleader squad, the cheerleaders 
were given one week to practice and 
get everything together for camp 
which was conducted by Universal 
Cheerleader Association at 
Memphis State University. Brown 
also stated that the squad 
represented Northwestern very well 
and that NSU certainly has alot to 
be proud of. Brown was also 
questioned about the fact that NSU 
has an uneven squad as far as males 
and females are concerned. He 
said, "I think that as far as spirit 
and pride were concerned, that the 
squad looked just as good or better 
than the other squads. As far as 
incorporating routines with what we 
have to work with, it was a little 
hard, but tthe squad still looked

The Word... 

September 15, 1981 
Current Sauce 

The Word is Dr. Bien venu 

Radical Rag 

Chicken Guts and Zero Population 

Many thanks to Country Pride 
foods for their personal welcome to 
the returning NSU students. With 
the low cloud cover that has beset 
Natchtioches in recent weeks, the 
"fowl" aroma coming from the 
plant has been almost to much to 

It seems as though when Country 
Pride opened up a few years back, 
that not only did they promise the 
community hundreds of jobs and 
thousands of dollars, they also 
promised us fresh air. 

Well, I don't know about 
Country Pride, but my momma 

always told me to keep my 

You know, I've actually been 
hypocritical of some other towns 
that have a smell problem. You've 
been through those towns before. 
They are the ones that have paper 
mills, can compaies, and factories 
either right in the middle of town or 
just on the outskirts. I've always 
said that I would never live in a 
town that smelled like a sewer, or 
worse yet, a dead chicken. 

And I definitly don't want to start 
now. I've lived in Natchitoches for 
quite some time now, ad I would 

really like to stay here. But I am 
afraid that if Country Pride does 
not do something about the "fowl" 
weather we've been haing lately, not 
only will I not be coming back, but 
neither will I be leaving, but so will 
about half of Northwestern. 

And if half of Northwestern 
leaves, then half of Natchitoches 
will be out of jobs, because 
Nachtitoches is dependent on 
Northwestern, and if half of 
Nachitoches is out of jobs, then they 
will move. Now if half of Nat- 
chitoches leaves, then poor old 
Country Pride won't have nobody 

to sell their chickens for them. 

So who really wins in the end? 
Certainly not me and half of 
Northwestern who have lost half of 
their hard-earned credits while 
transferring to Slippery Rock to get 
away from the smell. Certainly not 
half of Natchitoches, who have 
moved and had to start life all over 
again, and certainly not Country 
Pride, who just lost their plant. 

It seems like such a small price to 
pay for clean air, especially when 
one looks at what could happen if 
the air around Natchitoches and 
Northwestern continues to smell like 
dead chickens. 

School is back, or so it seems, and with that comes the first edition of the 
Sauce. Sorry that we are week late, but the Labor Day holiday kinda fouled 
us up. 

As you can see from the front page story, Northwestern president Dr. 
Rene Bienvenu has retired effective January 31. As of now, no successor 
has been named, but let's hope that the next NSU president will have as 
good a relationship with the Northwestern students a Dr. Bienvenu did. 

Amazin' Pointz — Pre-Registration , etc. 

By Da vid Stamey 

There haven't been too many Northwestern presidents, if any, who have 
had the kind of relationship that Dr. Bienvenu has. The retirement decision 
was not an easy decision for him to make, but there comes a time in 
everybody's life when they have to start thinking about themselves. 

And Dr. Bienvenu gave so unselfishly of himself these four years at NSU, 
that it is time for him to start enjoying some of the things that he has missed 
out on since assuming the often grueling, sometimes seven days a week job 
February 1, 1978. 

Everybody does, or at least should appreciate the job the Dr. Bienvenu 
has done to make Northwestern the place it is. And Northwestern has 
seldom if ever been in as good of a shape as it is now. Enrollment is at an 
all-time high, new buildings are springing up (the new Fine Arts Building), 
and the academic average is rapidly rising. 

And now with the situation at NSU making a turn for the better. Dr. 
Bienvenu has announced his retirement. His goals from four years ago have 
been accomplished, Northwestern is on the upswing and a whole lot of the 
credit for it can go directly to Dr. Bienvenu. 

Northwestern can only hope that the next NSU president will be as strong 
as Dr. Bienvenu, and as friendly. Whoever he is, he's got big shoes to fill 

One year ago NSU and the City of 
Natchitoches had one problem 
common to both, a bleak financial 
picture. Thanks apparently to a 
little hard work and a bit of cleaning 
up, the city has improved their 
problem quite a bit. 

When Joe Sampite took over as 
the Mayor of Natchitoches last 
summer, the city had just completed 
the 1979-80 fiscal year with a half- 
million dollar deficit. 

This year the city ended its year 
with a budget surplus of over 
$400,000. A super turnaround for 
one years work. 

A lot of the responsibility for the 
turnaround goes to Mayor Joe (The 
Place for You is NSU) Sampite. 

Personally I didn't believe the 
Mayor had time to worry much 

about the budges with his full time 
NSU promotions going on, but the 
figures speak for themselves. 

There is definitely no bigger, 
harder working, or enthusiastic 
supporter of Northwestern than our 
number one fan, Joe Sampite. 

Oh yeh, Mayor about this little 
problem with Chaplin's Lake... 

While on the subject of tur- 
narounds, when Ginger Parrish 
came to NSU three years ago, the 
Intramural Program, to say the 
most, was in a less than desirable 

Last spring in the NSU student 
survey the Intramural Program 
received the highest ranking of all 
programs listed in the area of 
General University Ser- 
vices/Programs. According to the 

survey the Intramual Program 
scored 88 percent satisfied. 

If you think its impossible to 
satisfy 88 percent of any group, well 
they you just never met Miss 

When NSU received Ginger's 
resignation in mid-August, the 
Northwestern community lost a one 
in a million person, and someone 
who will never be totally replaced 
just because her position will be 

Ginger has left us with one of the 
best Intramual Programs in the 
south, but all the same we will sure 
miss her... 

Some of the other activities didn't 
receive as high a score in the survey. 
Dorm Rules and Regulations (40%) 
and Residence Hall Services and 
Programs (48%) are two categories 

which, if the survey was taken the 
last week of August, I'm afraid they 
would not have rated that high. 

One possible way to ease the pain 
of class scheduling and registration 
would be to conduct pre- 
registration. Many other colleges 
have this system and are using it 
successfully. At present the Student 
Government Association is pushing 
for a system such as this, but will 
not get anywhere without the help 
of the administration. I believe this 
would be a great program and well 
worth the time taken to develop... 

Next week Amazin Pointz will be 
thoughts while wondering what the 
F. stands for in Stephen F. Austin. 

Get out to Turpin Stadium 
Saturday for the Demons game with 
the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks 
in the Battle for Chief Caddo... 

You know, at the start of every semester, it seems as though the first 
editorial in the Current Sauce tells everybody what the Sauce plans to this 

Well this first of the semester issue will break tradition and ask you what 
the Sauce should do this year. 

Admittedly some of you will have some rather interesting ideas on what 
the Current Sauce can do, but for the rest of you, we would appreciate 
letters to the editor (Please make them in good taste) submitted stories, and 
if it would make you happy, we would not mind starting a classified section 

in the Sauce.

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

A Look at the Next President 

Thoughts while wondering what 
else was going on Saturday night in 

....We've got a 50-yard-line seat 
for Louisiana's favorite spectator 
sport — politics — this fall at 
Northwestern. With the an- 
nouncement of Dr. Rene Bienvenu's 
retirement came the inevitable 
speculation over potential entrants 
in the chase for the house on 
Chaplin's Lake. 

You start with the unsuccessful 
applicants in 1977, when Bienvenu 
was tabbed to replace Dr. Arnold 
Kilpatrick. Then allow for about 
two other on-campus hopefuls and 
start guessing about outsiders who 
might want the job. 

But it's safer, easier and a lot 
more entertaining to stop guessing 
and sit back and watch the wheeling 
and dealing that increases in in- 
tensity as the date to appoint a 
replacement draws nearer. 

This is especially true in this 
instance because Northwestern will 
be the first state University to get a 
new President under the Board of 
Trustees' revised selection 

There will be three committees 
established here to screen applicants 
and make recommendations to the 
State Board. One panel will be 
composed of Alumni, one of faculty 
members and one, wonder of 
wonders, of students. Seriously. 

The new process is supposed to 
allow more input from the 
University community. It will, but it 
also allows more good old fashioned 
Looziana politics than ever before. 

The winner in the Presidential 
derby may be the person who can 
muster the most full, not the man 
with the most impressive resume. 
It's not impossible to get an ex- 
cellent president under this 
procedure. It just increases tenfold 
the chances of getting a bad one 
who has powerful friends. 

Still, the basic premise is good. 
Political clout decides most 
everything worth deciding in the 
state anyway, so why not involve the 
university community in the formal 
selection process That way the 
Board can answer gripes about their 
choice by reminding NSU critics 
that the university community had a 
role in the selection. 

Already there is plenty of 
recruiting going on. The Trustees 
have in the past shown a large in- 
terest in student 88 specificaly, SGA 
opinion 88 when considering 
presidential apointments. Bienvenu 
won the backing of the SGA in 

Many of the SGA members 
doubtless will serve on the student 
screening committee. The SGA 
could again formerally throw its 
support behind one candidate, and 
if that candidate also was backed by 

the student committee, the Trustees 
would have to give him the utmost 

The support of the SGA members 
who also serve on the screening 
committee will be as prized as an 
oasis in the Sahara. They must keep 
in mind what's at stake here- 
Northwestern's future-and what 
benefits the student body could gain 
from their decision. 

In the parlance of politics, they'll 
be "Playing Hardball." Let the 
games begin.. 

...Speaking of games, how about 
those Demons? 

If ever there was a fun football 
game to watch, it was here last 
Saturday night. It was wild and 
crazy and wide-open and better than 
good. Why so many people missed 
it, I don't know. 

Bet they don't make the same 
mistake twice... 

...The NSU Lecture Series flor the 
fall semester begins at 9|a.m. 
Wednesday with Pulitizer-Prize- 
Winning author Shirley Ann Grau 
of New Orleans. Former Sen. 
George McGovern and writer 
George Plimpton are also scheduled 
to appear here this fall. 

Attendance at Lecture Series 
events recently has been woeful. 
Even though classes are dismissed, 
most of us sleep late or head to the 
Union rather than sit in on a speaker 
for an hour. Part of the problem

While You Were Gone ... 

For those of your who were away 
for the summer and did not have the 
Sauce to keep you informed of what 
had happened at Northwestern, 
here; in a nutshell, is a composite of 
what happened in Demonland. 

In early June, five Demon track 
and field specialists grabbed All- 
American honors at the NCAA 
Track and Field Championships in 
Baton Rouge. The five, led by 
double winner Joe Delaney, in- 
cluded Mario Johnson, Victor 
Oatis, and Mark Dupei who won 
the 400 meter relay against the 
fastest runners in the nation. Not to 
be outdone, ihen freshman Steve 
Stockton won third place in the 

Later in June and through most 

may have been the out of the way 
location of Prather Coliseum, where 
assemblies were held last year. 

We no longer have that excuse. 
This semester's assemblies will be in 
the Arts & Sciences Building 
Auditorium, right on the way to 
class for nearly everyone. 

About $3,500 in student funds 
goes to support the Lecture Series 
each semester. The attendance drop 
has forced the financially-strapped 
SGA to consider cutting, or 
eliminating, the student funding. 

This is a valuable program, one 
that we can learn from and enjoy. 
We've had some great individuals 
visit our campus during the past 10 
years as Dart of the Lecture Series. 

In would be a shame to see the 
Lecture Series die because nobody 
cared enough to attend to assem- 
blies. Since your money is being 
spent, why not go see what you're 
paying for?... 

Student Survey 

of July, Northwestern was besieged 
by hundreds of high schoolers in the 
annual summer camps held at NSU. 
The cheerleader camp brought in 
most of the potential college 
students but several other camps 
handled alot of kids. 

The second annual Folk Festival 
hit the NSU campus July 17 and 
estimates had it that 15,000 people 
from 31 states and eight foreign 
countries toured the Festival. 

And finaly the SUGB was busy 
during the sunner with an outdoor 
concert and the booking of "The 
Toons" a new wave band from San 
Francisco, to perform September 16 
in the Ballroom. 

And that, in an abridged form, 
was what happened at NSU while 
you were gone. 

A Letter to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

I'm writing this letter to you in 
hopes that you would consider 
printing it in your campus 

I'm presently incarcerated in the 
Southern Ohio Correctional 
Facility. To briefly describe myself; 
I'm 31 years old and I am black. 
I've grown to realize three en- 
counters of a varied nature, that 
friendship is priceless in this brief 
life experience. I only hope 
someone will afford me an op- 
portunity to be a friend. My 

primary interest is exchanging 
perspctives through correspondence 
on topics relevant to politics 
(domestid and foreign), class and 
racial consciousness, social 
psychology, metaphysics, and any 
discussion which will raise my level 
of awareness. 

Thank you for your time and 
hopefully consideration.

The Fellowship of Christian 
Students helds its first fellowship 
Tuesday, September 8, in the living 
room of the Home Economics 
building. Weekly fellowships will 
be held there on Tuesday evenings at 
8 p.m. 

FCS is a nondenominational 
organization designed to aid 
students in their walk with Christ by

those who are Christians to enrich 
their spiritual lives. 

Those assembled Tuesday night 
were given a "pop quiz" concerning 
a very well known Bible story. 
Surprisingly many failed. This 
illustrates the fact that we all need

share God's love and learning his 
will for us is or should be a vital part 
of Christial living. 


Rodeo Team 

An intercollegiate rodeo team has 
been established at Northwestern to 
begin competeing this fall in con- 
tests sanctioned by the National 
Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. 

Northwestern, which has awarded 
rodeo scholarships to 13 students, 
join 18 other junior and senior 
colleges in Texas and Louisiana as 
members of the NIRA's Southern 

Gary Jones, instructor of 
agriculture and faculty advisor for 
the NSU rodeo team, said the 
university will compete in three 
NIRA rodeos this fall and 10 in-

Northwestern is one of three 
Louisiana schools in the NIRA's 
Southern Region. McNeese State 
University in Lake Charles and the

In keeping with the SAUCE's 
tradition of rewarding good and 
sniffing out evil - wherever it may 
hide, this week we will attempt to 
conduct a student survey where 
YOU, the student, rate your in- 

Here's how it works; think back 
on all the NSU instructors that you 
have ever taken a class from. Now 
that you have them all lined up in 
the archives of your mind, choose 
the one teacher that you think 
deserves recognition as "The Best 
Teacher at NSU". Then tell us 

The Best Teacher at NSU is 

why(Be as brief as possible). Simple 
enough , right? 

The next step is the enjoyable 
part, remember all those times you 
wondered, "How did I wind up in 
the worst teacher at NSU' s class?", 
well now your chance has come to 
help others from winding up there. 
Tell us who, in your opinion, 
deserves to be named "The Worst 
Te acher at NSU", and why. 

This next step is the hard one. 
Drop your forms in the Current 
Sauce slot on the second floor of 
Kyser (Arts and Sciences Building). 
The results of the survey will be 
tabulated and printed in the 
SAUCE. Deadline for turning in 
your entries is Tuesday, September

Sophomore Senator. I have served 
as SGA Freshman Senator and 
through that office, I have learned 
the answers to our problems that we

Robin Price 

Hi, my name is Robin Price and I 
am currently a junior majoring in 
Pre-Med. I graduated from 
Parkway High School in Bossier 
City. I am running for SGA senator 
because I deeply want to become a 
working part of NSU. 

I feel like I've had a good amount 
of experience in this type of work 
because I was a senator for two 
years in my high school's student 
council and vice-president my senior 

I transferred here last semester 
from Centenary College in

Billy Joe Harrington 

I am Billy Joe Harrington, and I 
am running for SGA Senior 
Senator. I'm in my fourth year at 
NSU. During that time I have seen 
and even been involved in many 
changes in the university. Some of 
those changes have been for the 
best, and some haven't. 

I don't think anyone could argue 
that in order for NSU to regain its 
high standards, it is going to take 
the hard work of all of us, students 
and faculty alike. 

I believe that I am prepared and 
qualified during my last year to 
work as hard as is necessary and to 
make whatever changes are 
necessary to keep Northwestern a 
University we can be proud of. 

Please give me your support for 
Senior senator. 

Angle Rome 

One of my goals here at NSU is to - 
become one with the college by 
getting involved with the people 
who make up the student body. My 
four years of high school were spent 
being involved in positions such as 
student government secretary and 
senior class sergeant-at-arms. I 
believe that the school gained as 
much from my involvement as I 
gained from being involved. I 
come here with great enthusiasm 
and the belife that NSU has great 
things in store for the future. We 
students can have a voice in the 
building of this future through SGA 
and its members. I look forward to 
becoming involved in NSU and, 
hopefully, in the SGA as freshman

Hello, my name is Diana Grau

SGA Sophomore Senator. This is 
my fourth semester at NSU and I 
feel that I know the needs of the 
students well enough to serve in an 
SGA office.

chance to expad my involvement in

Noel Nicole 

Hi, my name is Noel Nicolle and I 
am running for the office of 
Sophomore class senator. I am a 
pre-law history major from Baton 
Rouge. In my three semesters here 
at Northwestern I have seen several 
things that should be changed. 

When we arrive here, most of us 
are 18 years old and have the right 
to vote on issues affecting our lives 
away from the university. We can 
vote for congressmen, senators and 
the president of the United States, 
but the university denies us the right 
to make basic decisions about the 
way we live here on campus. If 
elected I will address these issues 
and work to make Northwestern 
sensitive to our wants and needs.

These words to live by have an old-fashioned 
ring, but they apply to the energy situation faci ng 
us today. It seems clear that, if we're to meet our 
growing energy requirements, we must rely on 
the technology at hand. And the majority of 
scientists and energy leaders agree that nuclear 
power and coal are the best means of meeting 
these requirements.

Northwestern Buries Angelo St. 59-26 

Following Saturday's game with 
Angelo State, Coach A.L. Williams 
said that, "Anytime you win a game 
it makes you happy, but this game 
really made me happy." 

Why was Williams so happy 
about this win in particular? Could 
it have been that his team racked up 
541 total yards and 59 points against 
what was considered to be a 
defensive club? Its true. You are 
not in the Twilight Zone. It actually 
happened as the Demons rolled over 
the Rams 59-26 at Turpin Stadium. 

Quarterbacks Bobby Hebert and 
Eric Barkley combined to throw for 
355 yards and a school-record, five 
touchdowns to pave the way. One 
of Barkley' s scoring strikes was a 94 
yard bomb Victor Oatis. Oatis 
grabbed three passes on the evening 
for 148 yards. 

The tone of the unpredictable 
games set when on only the third 
play from scrimmage, Angelo 
State's Jerry James fumbled the ball 
away at the ASU 20. They for one 
of the very few times in the contest, 
NSU failed to move anywhere, and 
Dale Quickel booted a 44 yard field 
goal to put the Demons up 3-0 at the 
12:34 mark. 

After a lackluster offensive show 
the previous week in a 17-10 win 
over Alcorn State, the Rams went to 
work midway through the first 
quarter. Quarterback Doug 
Kuhlman, at his own 28, though a 
nifty screen pass to running back 
Norris Morgan. Morgan, grabbing 
it at his own 30, weaved through 
two would-be tacklers and raced all 
the way to the ASU 49. On the next 
play, even before the crowd had 
even settled back into their seats, the 
Rams struck again. James burst 
through a big hole off the right side 
of the NSU defense and raced 43 
yards before being pulled down by 
safety Steve Graf at the Demon 6. 

After a pass interference call 
placed the ball on the one, giving 
ASU a first and goal situation, the 
Northwestern defense made a 
momentum-saving goal-line stand. 
Four straight running plays came up 
with nothing, and on the last play, 
Kuhlman was stopped by Mike 
Camden, who led NSU in tackles 
with 10. After the defense made the 
big play, the offense seemed to 
follow suit, and never let up. Just 
ask Angelo State. 

On a second and on play from the 
Rams' 35, Hebert went play-action 
and found Oatis open. The fleet- 
footed receiver grabbed it and went 
in for the score. Quickel added the 
first of his eight straight PAT's, 
which is a new school record, to give 
NSU a 10-0 edge with 1:16 left. 

Following an ASU punt, Hebert 
engineered a six-play, 55 yard drive 
early in the second period, with 
Kenny Jones diving from the five at 
13:22 upping the count to 17-0. 

Just when it looked like the 
Demons were making it look like a 
rout, Morgan led the visitors back. 
The Ram tailback dropped a pitch 
from Kuhlman in his backfield, 
recovered it, reversed directions, 
and went 72 yards through a 
stunned NSU defense for the score. 
Mike Thomas tacked on the PAT 
and with 1 1 :49 to go in the half it 
was 17-7. And that was as close as 
Angelo State would get for the rest 
of the night. 

Both quarterbacks completed 
long scoring passes late in the half. 
Hebert connected with Mark Duper 
on a 58 yard play, and Kuhlman hit 
Joey Simms on a 76 yard strike to 
make it 24-13 at intermission. 

After Hebert and Kuhlman 
traded TD passes to open up the 
second half, NSU finally broke the 
game open, behind a more .cautious 
defense and the passing of Barkley. 

Barkley's 94-yard bomb to Oaris 
with 1 1 :02 remaining in the contest 
made it 45-26 and put an end to any 
Ram hopes of coming back. Mike 
Brown, on a two yard return of a 
blocked punt and Richard Clark, on 
a three yard run, closed out the 

Besides singling out the offensive 
and defensive stars of the game, 
Williams also gave credit to the 
assistant coaches for what he called, 
"a job well done in preparation for 
the game." 

The coaching staff heads right 
back to work as they prepare for the 
invasion of Stephen F. Austin, this 
Saturday at Turpin Stadium. 

Kenny Jones (40) heads up field, Rams' Columbus Harris (20) 
looks for a way to but him off.

20-yard line and picking up one first 
down. When the Demons were 
forced to punt they got a bad snap 
and Boise State took over at the six- 
yard line. 

On third and goal tailback 
Rodney Webster scored from the 
one-yard line togive the Broncos a 7- 
advantage after Kenrick Camerud 
scored the first of his 10-first half 
points with the PAT. 

Boise State added to the score 
after defensive back Rick Woods 
intercepted a Bobby Hebert pass 

and returned it to the Northwestern 
22 yard line. The Broncos failed to 
move the ball and Camerud kicked 
his first field goal, a 33-yarder with 
2:45 left in the first period. 

The Demon offense looked like it 
would get untracked on the next 
possession until the Broncos got 
their third interception of the 
period. After fullback Carlton 
Finister ran 21 yards into Bronco 
territory for the first time, Heberd 
had his pass intercepted by Larry 

Boise quarterback Tim Klena 
later hit wide receiver Kipp Bedard 
for a 45-yard gain and Camerud 
came on four plays later to bood a 
24-yard field goal. 

That's when the Northwestern 
offense finally got untracked. 
Taking over at the 28-yardline 
Hebert moved the team to the Boise 
37-yard line with an 18-yard three- 

The final Demon points of the 
half came after Webster fumbled on 
Boise's next possession. The 
Demons failed to pick up a first 
down after taking over at the Boise 
16. Quickel then kicked a 30-yarder 
to make it 13-6. 

The Broncos took over later with 
52 seconds left in the half and on the 
strength of a 41 yard completion to 
Ron Harvey moved into field goal 
range. Camerud ended the first half 
scoring with a 45-yarder into the 

Boise State's veteran defense 
scored two third period touchdowns 
to break open a close contest as the 
defending Division I-AA national 
champions defeated Northwestern 
State 32-20. 

Leading 16-6 at halftime, the 
Broncos blocked a Leo Clement 
punt and Paul Unger recovered it in 
the endzone for a Boise score. 
Three plays later Ail-American 
defensive back Rick Woods 
returned an Eric Barkley pass 35 
yards for yet another score with 4:54 
to play in the period. 

After those two quick scores the 
Demons used two Boise State 
turnovers to get tight back in the 
contest before the third quarter 
ended. After a Boise fumble, 
tailback Kenny Jones rambled 14 
yards for his first score and Barkley 
hit Jerry Wheeler for the two-point 

Boise fumbled again on its next 
possession and after a pass in- 
terference call in the endzone Jones 
drove over from the one. Barkley's 
pass to Wheeler for the conversion 
was stopped inches short of the 
goal, leaving the score 29-30 after 
the end of three periods. 

Boise State stopped the Nor- 
thwestern momentum by keeping 
the ball for five minutes on its next 
drive, one that ended in a missed 48- 
yard field goal attempt. 

When the Demons failed to move 
again on their next drive Boise State 
got its fourth field goal from 
Camerud, a 42-yarder, to end the 
scoring for the night. 

Barkley, the key to the two 
Northwestern second-half scores, 
came off the bench in the third 
period in place of Bobby Hebert. It 
was Barkley's passing that got the 
Demons in position for both scores 
by Kenny Jones. 

The Northwestern newest 
weapon, freshman tailback LeRoy 
Ellis, suffered an ankle injury in the 
first half and did not return. Up to 
that point he had two rushes for 1 1 
yards and one reception for 19 
yards, the play he was injured on. 

Northwestern put itself in a hole 
from the first possession of the 
game. After taking the ball at the

Cross Country Looks 
to New Year 

Current Sauce Porker Pickers 

The Northwestern State cross 
country team will open its 1981 
schedule next Friday against 
Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, 

And when they do open the 
season, coach Jerry Dyes is not sure 
what to expect from his relatively 
young squad. "We should be 
competitive, but are really green," 
Dyes stated. Especially in actual 
cross country racing. Recruiting for 
cross country was very limited 
because we recruit basically for 
track purposes, and then tracksters 
who would like to run long distances 
could join the C.C. team. We're 
going to have to recruit strictly for 
cross country in the future to remain 

One blow to the program was 
received when it was learned that 
Herb Medosa, the number two 
runner on last year's squad had 
chose not to return to school. 
Couple that with the grauduation of 
last season's top runner Billy Green, 
and you would think that would 
concern Dyes? "Not too much, 
Dyes said. We have some good, 
capable runners coming out, in- 
cluding what I think could be an 
excellent replacement in Andy 

Nelson, a freshman from 
Cleveland, TX. was the defending 
Texas AAA champion at 1,600 
meters, along with a second place 
finish at 3,200. 

Other top prospects include Doug 
Burch, a senior from Columbus, 
GA., and number three runner on 
the squad last season; Vic Bradford, 
senior out of Winnfield; and Robert 
Dukes, a freshman from Shreveport 
(Fair Park) who Dyes noted as 
"someone with fine potential." 

Mix those four together and you 
could understand why Dyes is 
expecting a competitive team. 

Rounding out the squad are Brian 
Barrios, a sophomore from 
Lockport (South Lafourche); Curt 
Boudreax, freshman out of 
Lockport (South Lafourche); and 
Willie Edwards, a freshman from

Stamey Returning Champion 

Porker Picker Panel Gears Up For New Season 

Chief Caddo will once again be 
on the minds of both the Nor- 
thwestern State Demons and the 
Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks 
when the two rivals collide this 
Saturday evening at Turpin 

The seven-foot, six-inch, 1000 
pound statue was constructed to 
accentuate the two schools heated 
battles back in the late 1950's. Most 
recently, NSU has been the chief's 
home for the past five years, and 
SFA would certainly like to make 
this his last year of residence... 

The Lumberjacks, still stinging 
from a 17-14 loss to Mississippi 
College this past Saturday, are 
returning 22 lettermen from last 
season's squad. Heading the veer 
offense are 5*11, 177 lb. quar- 
terback Dale Horton, who hit on 14 
or 28 passes for 159 yards in 
Saturday's loss. Fullback Jimmy 
Kegler (11 carries-59 yards), and 
tailback Charlie Smith (18-64 yds., 1 
TD) are the top rushers. Tight end 
Rex Dorman leads the team in 
receiving with three catches for 48 

On defense, Coach Charles 
Simmons has returnees in 6'6", 225 
lb. end Lester Melontree (leader in 
quarterback sacks with five last 
year), and 6'2", 251 lb. tackle Ben 

Now a big question. What can 
the Demons do to top last week's 
performance in their 59-26 romp 
over Angelo State? 

Quarterbacks Bobby Hebert and 
Eric Barkley 

combined for a school-record five 
touchdown passes in the victory. In 
the wide open offensive show, one 
player quietly set of tied four 
records. Placekicker Dale Quickel 
broke the record for most PAT's 
made (8), along with best point- 
after percentage (8-8, 100%). He 
also tied records for most PAT's 
attempted (8), and most points by 
kicking (11). 

Victor oatis came close to 
eclipsing a pair of records. His 148 
yards receiving was fourth best ever. 
Dick Redding holds the mark with 
187 yards dating back to 1966. The 
Barkely to Oatis 94-yard touchdown 
pass was four yards shy of last 
season's Hebert to Randy Liles TD 
strike of 98 yards set against 
Southeastern Louisiana. 

So much for the records... Last 
year NSU defeated the Lumberjacks 
22-3, and undoubtly SFA would like 
to get Chief Caddo back to grace its 
campus once again. You would 
tend to think they would have 
forgot what he looked like after 
being away so long? 

Saturday's game features a battle 
of contrasting styles, the Lum- 
berjacks' running against the 
Demons' aerial show. If this contest 
comes anywhere close to last week's 
game, you are going to be in for a 

Will the chief remain here? Will 
he be headed to Nacogdoches? Can 
the Demons set anymore records? 
These questions and many other will 
be answered this Saturday, 7:00 
p.m. at Turpin Stadium. 

The Current Sauce's completely 
(almost) revamped edition of the 
Prediction's Panel starts a brand- 
new year with three returning let- 
terman, one rookie, and three 
(count 'em three) new guest 
selectors every week, to highlight an 
expected 1 1 week season. 

Back from last year's squad is 
four year veteran David Stamey 
who will be trying for a repeat of his 
magnificent year last year whn he 
went 89-31 and captured the 
Highman Trophy, the symbol of 
football forecasting excellence. 

Dr. Ray Baumgardner, another 
seasoned veteran returns this year 

after posing an 84-36 record last 
year good enough for third place. 
Dr. Baumgardner, possiblethe most 
learned predictor on the staff, has 
an uncanny ability to predict the 
New Orleans Saints games. Dr. B., 
only missed one Saints game last 
year. However, that was the game 
that they won. 

The third remaining member of 
the panel is Joe Cunningham. The 
only reason that Cunningham is on 
the panel is that the KGB Chicken 
declined an offer of $3.14 to be a 
regular panel member. 

The fourth regular member, is 
newcoomber Bob Sjoberg. Bob will 

try to tell you that he is from 
Shreveport, but his funny accent 
and the absolute love for the 
University of Minnesota Gophers 
gives him away. 

This week, the panel welcomes 
three new and intelligent guests. 
First is Wendy Wyble, a senior 
Secretarial Administration major 
from Opelousas. 

Wendy, who is the SGA 
secretary, threatened to File a 
temporary restraining order against 
the Panel if a member of the 
controversial student governing 
body preferebly 5'3" black-haired 
female from South Louisian was not 

An Anonymous Sports Column 

chosen as a selector. 

Janet M. Hymes, a mer- 
chandising major who also happens 
to be a first year freshman is 
another of the panel members. 
Janet, whose favorite class doens't 
start till Friday and Saturday nigh/ 
at 8:00 lends brains as well as god* 
looks to the panel. 

The third member of the panel is 
the Demon Mascot. The Mascot is a 
general studies major who has been 
at Northwestern since anybody can 

And there you have it, the firsT 
week's staff and predictions. 
Hopefully they will be more im- 
pressive than last year's staff. 

There have been may complaints 
about the lack of football games 
being played by the Demons this 
fall. Head Coach A.L. Williams 
has come under fire because the 
Demons only play nine games this 
year. Really it is not Williams fault. 

The reason behind the lack of 
games lies in the fact that the 
Demons just don't have anybody 
who wants to play them anymore. 
And the reason for that is because 
Northwestern is beating them. 

The University of Texas- 
Arlington dropped Northwestern 
from their schedule because the 
Demons are a Division 1-AA shool 
and UTA is a Division 1-A school. 

That might not seem like much of 
a reason, but when you consider the 
fact that Northwestern whipped 
UTA 28-24 in 1977, well that does 

not look good on a Division 1 
school's record. 

Then there is Southwestern. The 
Demons defeaed USL two of the 
last three times they played them. 
USL is also a Division 1-AA school. 

Then there is the Lamar Cadinals. 
Lamar dropped NSU from its 
shedule this year and Baylor was 
added. Lamar proceded to whip 
Baylor last week, but in the last two - 

years that the Cardinas have plaed 
the Demons, Northwestern has 
come out on top twice, and one of 
those games was a 43-0 smear. 

Of course there are the old 
familiar Louisiana schools who 
haven't forgotten Northwestern. 
The McNeese Cowboys are one. 
And they sure haven't forgotten 
NSU. The Demons are the only 
team to defeat the Cowboys in the 

regular season in the previous two 
years. And of course, the Cowboys 
have gone to the Independent 
Bowl each of the pat two years. 

So that is the main reason that tin 
Demons have trouble scheduling 
teams to play football against, it' s 
just not easy to get a team ready 1? 
come in and play a game of footl 
against a Division 1-AA team whtf' 
they know they are going to lose.

Grau Speaks During 
Wednesday Blackout 

************* ******* 

"This is the second time this has 
happened to me," exclaimed Shirley 
Ann Grau, as she spoke to the 
public in a dark auditorium on the 
NSU Campus during a city blackout 
early Wednesday morning. For- 
tunately, power was soon replaced. 

Shirley Ann Grau, the New 
Orleans fiction writer who won the 
1965 Pulitzer Prize for her novel, 
"The Keepers of the House," 
kicked of the first series of lectures 
for the NSU Fall semester. 

Miss Grau is the mother of four 
and has been married 26 years to 
James Feibleman, a writer of non- 
fiction. She first dreamed of being a 
solo player and found love and 
money as fascinating things. 

Miss Grau first spoke on the years 
of the 40's and 50' which was a time 
of southern regional writing. There 
were many young writers at this 
time. To name a few, Harper Lee 
was famous for his novel, "To Kill a 
Mockingbird," and Katherine 
Porter was known for her novel, 
"Ship of Fools." "For my 
money," Miss Grau comments, 
"William Gaunet was the best of the 
southern writers." 

The style of southern writing 
shifted in the 60's and ended 
regional writing. "I noticed in the 
60' s, I began dropping regionalism 
from my work," remembers Miss 
Grau. Her last books were set only 
partly in the South. New England 
was the setting of her latest novel. 
The change of the 60's was over- 
whelming and became a result of 
terrible uniform life for writers. 
This uniformity began to eat away 
at the roots of southern regionalism 
and ended the period of classical 
southern fiction. 

How does one become a writer? 
According to Miss Grau, writing 
cannot be taught. It is a self-thing. 
Sitting down at a typewriter and 
finding words to go on a piece of 
pape forces one to write. That 
discipline is were a person begins to 
learn to write. Because writers 
spend many hours alone, writing is 
considered an "isolated game." A 
person that is self-taught finds 
himself forming very odd habits. "I 
once knew a man, Miss Grau 
laughs, "Who couldn't si down to 

write unless he was wearing a certain 
hunting shirt." 

When asked how long it takes to 
finish a novel, Miss Grau replied 
that it just depends because some 
take longer than others. Reading 
many different newspapers helps 
Miss Grau to combine ideas for 
settings and characters in her 
stories. She does not like criticism. 
She ways that it only makes trouble 
for her. According to Miss Grau, 
writers are terrible liars, especially 
when talking to other writers. "The 
only way my husband and I stay 
away from disagreements, she 
states, "Is because I don't read his 
books and he doesn't read mine." 

A manuscript is sent first to a 
random publishing house. Hired 
readers take all manuscripts and 
look through and evaluate them. 
All manuscripts may not be read. 
Some manuscripts are basically 
good but need work on them. Some 
writers hire their own editors to do 
this job. To win a Pulitzer Prize, a 
person first has to be nominated by 
a jury. The jury approves usually 
three persons whose names are sent 
to an advisory board. There is so 
much disagreement sometimes, that 
no awards are given at all. 

Accoding to Miss Grau, a writer's 
income is much higher nowadays. 
The average income of a fiction 
writer is $45,000 and the average 
writer makes just under $5 an hour. 

"Writing has fashion just as 
much as womens clothes," states 
Miss Grau as she speaks of her own 
personal view as a writer. Miss 
Grau prefers writing novels to short 
stories. She changes her point of 
view with each novel without 
changing the emphasis. If a writer 
wants to travel to oreign lands to 
acquire material, one must have 
much knowledge of foreign 
languages. Miss Grau prefers to stay 
right here in the United States as she

Enrollment Rises While Chaplin's Lake 
Future Remains Clouded , Bienvenu Says 

President Renee Bienvenu 
released the first unofficial re- 
gistration figures showing an in- 
crease in the Natchitoches campus 
enrollment over last fall, at his 
appearance before the SGA meeting 
on Mon. Sept. 14. 

In an informal state of the 
campus address, Bienvenu spoke of 
progress and problems that he has 
had on projects, two of them being 
the Chaplin's Lake Clean-Up effort, 
and renovation of the Chemistry 

Bienvenu announced that 6,528 
students had enrolled at the Nat- 
chitoches campus of NSU for the 
fall semester of 1981. The fall 
registration for last year was 5,954. 

Dr. Austin Temple, Registrar, 
told the SAUCE that these figures 
are not the official 14 day 
enrollment figures used by all 
colleges and universities, and those 
figures will be released later this 

The increase in unofficial figures 
came from part-time students, said 
Bienvenu. He believed that inflation 
and dissipating financial aid has 

helped all local schools, and he 
added, "We'll take any kind that 

"It looks like I'll retire before 
they can get it cleaned out", said 
Bienvenu on Chaplin's Lake. 

"Cleaning it out is not the 
solution,", said the President, and 
related his belief that the lake would 
fill up again as long as the city 
continued to pump into it. He also 
expressed his belief that the Water 
Treatment plant, which is pumping 
the sludge into the lake, would 

In response to a question over 
ownership of the lake, Bienvenu 
said that the confusion is not cleared 
up, but "Even if the city owned it, 
they could not continue to do what 
they are doing". 

"The process is slow", said 
Bienvenu, and he attributed red tape 
and a cut back in monies from 
Washington to delay of the cleanup. 
He stated that a local Natchitoches 
group and a group of engineers 
from Baton Rouge were trying to 
find a solution to the Chaplin Lake 

In response to a question on 
renovation of the Chemistry 
Building, Bienvenu said "I might 
have to close that building". 

Bienvenu said that there was a 
problem with fumigation in the 
Chemistry building, and said that it 
was in a bad state of repair. "I keep 
a close check on it from a safety 
standpoint, ...If I have to, I'll close 
it and we'll have to teach wherever 
we can". 

Money for the renovation of the 
Chemistry Building had been ap- 
proved, but was later cut from the 
budget by Baton Rouge, explained 

The president was optimistic 
about the future of Northwestern, 
pointing to the increase in 
enrollment, and to a change in the 
city of Natchitoches' attitude 
towards students. 

A new Lab School is in the future, 
revealed Bienvenu. "I've had the 
money tucked away in Baton Rouge 
for two years, " said Bienvenu. He 
also disclosed that bids were now 
being taken to clean up the burned 
Bullard remains and tie them in with 
the school, as well as the possibility 

of a new nusing building in 

Several academic programs at 
Northwestern that were scrapped by 
the state Board of Regents were 
brought up by a student, and 
Bienvenu replied, "Nine of those 
programs had not had a major in 
them in seven years", and he ex- 
plained that NSU has an education 
heritage so it stood to lose more 
programs, but it also stood to keeep 
more programs. 

Bienvenu expressed his belief that 
Northwestern would see very few 
new programs coming in the next 
few years because of President 
Reagan's budget cuts. 

"The best thing we can do for 
Northwestern is to increase 
enrollment", said Bienvenu. He felt 
that the "goodies come from Baton 
Rouge, and they pick up as student 

Dr. Bienvenu received a standing 
ovation and a note of appreciation 
from the Student Government 
Association. He received it saying, 
"Coming from you that is won- 
derful... from anybody else they 
could give me a gold bar and it 
wouldn't mean a thing." 

George McGovern To Speak at Lecture Series 

George McGovern, former 
Democratic Senator from South 
Dakota, will speak at Northwestern 
Thursday as the second speaker of 
NSU's fall semester Distinguished 
Lecture Series. 

"The Radical Right: Challenge 
to Democracy" will be the topic of 
McGovern's address, which is 
scheduled for 11 a.m. in the, 
auditorium of John S. Kyser Hall of 
Arts and Sciences. His address is

for President in 1972, McGovern 
now serves as chairman of 
Americans for Common Sense, a 
public interest group headquar- 
teredin Washington, D.C. 

The coalition which McGovern 
heads is concerned with "building a 
counterforce to the right-wing, 
single issue groups that have sur- 
faced in American politics and 
encouraging the development of 
more practical answers to the great 
central issues that face the United 
States in domestic and foreign 

Last spring, McGovern was a 
visiting professor at Northwestern 
University, where he lectured on 
American foreign policy to a class 

of more than 800 students. 
McGovern earned a Ph.D. degree in 
history and government at Nor- 

NSU's distinguished lecturere was 
elected to the U.S. House of 
Representatives in 1956 and 1958 to 
the U.S. Senate in 1962. He was re- 
elected to the Senate in 1968 and 

McGovern's government career 
also includes serving as director of 
the U.S. Food for Peace Program 
and special assistant to President 
John F. Kennedy and chairman of 
the Democratic Commission on 
Party Structure and Delegate 
Selection. In 1976, he served as a 
Senate delegate to the 31st session of 
the General Assembly of the United 
Nations and returned in 1978 as a 
Senate delegate for the U.N.'s 
special session on disarmament. 

During his tenure as a U.S. 
Senator, McGovern served on the 
Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and 
Forestry Committee and was 
chairman of the Senate Select 
Committee on Nutrition and 
Human Needs. He was also a 
member of the Senate Foreign 
Relations Committee and chairman 
of its Subcommittee on African 

Books which McGovern has 
authored include "War Against 
Want," "Agricultural Thought in 
the Twentieth Century," "A Time 

of War/ A Time of Peace," 
Great Coalfied War," 
American Journey" 


Napoli, Peterson, Lewis 
Elected To SGA on First Ballot 

Teresa Peterson, Vicki Lewis and 
Dean Napoli became the only SGA 
class senatorial candidates to win 
elections on the first ballot, and 1 1 
other hopefuls must compete again 
in a run-off election to see who will 
be the 1981-82 members of the 
Student Government Association in 
the freshman, sophomore and 
junior levels. Lewis and Napoli 
were chosen as senior senators on 
the first ballot and Peterson clin- 
ched a spot on the sophomore 

Napoli garnered 1 10 votes to lead 
all vote getters in every classification 
and outdistance Lewis by seven who 
had 103. Billy Joe Harrington 
finished a close third and Stan 
Scroggins and Doug Ireland 
finished fourth and fifth. 

On the junior class senator race, 
Robin Price, a pre-med major from 
Bossier City finished first with 89 
votes, but was forced into a run-off 
with three others. Don Stacy, who 

served as a freshman class senator 
finished a close second with 82 votes 
and Susie Hubbard with 66 votes 
and Amy Nell Padgett with 60 votes 
founded out the run-off par- 

Peterwon won one-half of the 
sophomore class spot with a land- 
slide victory easily outdistancing the 
other four candidates with 106 
votes. Deanna Grau, who had 73 
votes, and Noel Nicolle who had 65 
votes will be joined in the run-off by 
Janie Byrge who finished with 51. 

Seven freshmen ran for the spot 
of freshman class senator, the 
largest group of them all, and no 
clear winner was chosen. Bob 
Cleveland and Scott Repp were tied 
at first with 88 votes apiece, but 
Lauri Weaver with 71 votes and 
Bridgett Jones with 70 votes were 
still in the running. 

Run-off elections will be held 
tomorrow (Wednesday) in the

Brown Leaves as 

Toones Packs Students 

Housing Coordinato 

Many people at Northwestern 
State University heard the call of 
school bells this fall. Some will be 
returning after an absence of several 
years to the halls of higher learning. 
Among those returning this year 
will be Becky Brown Coordinator of 
Housing at Northwestern. Becky 
Brown announced in a memo to 
President Bienvenu that she has 
decided to go back to school at New 
Orleans Baptist Theological 

In an interview in her office on 
the third floor of the Student Union 
Miss Brown discussed her tenure at 
Northwestern and her return to 

Becky Brown came to Nor- 
thwestern in 1976 from Louisiana 
College with an undergraduate 
degree in History Education to 
begin her raduate studies in Student 
Personal Services. Star ing out as a 
graduate assistant house director till 
in 1977 she began working with 
Barbara Gillis then Director of 
Housing. Miss Brown was later 
moved to the position of graduate 
assistant to Cecil Knotts then 
Director of Student Services. In 
May of 1979 she graduated with a 
Masters in Student Personnel 
Services. The summer after 
graduation she decided to stay at 
Northwestern during the summer of 
1979 taking more classes till she 
could find a job. During the 
summer the job of Coordinator of 
Housing was reestablished. She 
turned in an application for the 
newly reestablished position and 
was chosen from a field of ap- 
plicants for the position. On July 1, 
1979 she began her work at 

Miss Brown in her interview 
stated, "I feel I have achieved my 
goal to gain exposure to public 
schools in addition to my earlier 
experience in a private religious 
school." Brown said, "Going to 
the seminary has been one of my 
personal desires since I was twelve 
years old." She will be seeking a 
Master of Divinity with a major in 
Religious Education at New Orleans 
Theological Seminary. 

She also commented she felt that 
her experiences at Northwestern will 
be invaluable. Northwestern was 
one of the steps she took in gaining 
valuables experiences for Student 
Personal Services. 

Miss Brown's experiences in 
housing at Northwestern have 
already been helpful for her to be 
able to find a work job at New 
Orleans Theological Seminary to 
pay for her schooling. 

Brown stated tnat sne almost 
began the seminary in August but 
decided to wait since the seminary 
had a term that began in October. 
She decided to wait to October and 
get things squared away at Nor- 
thwestern for the fall semester. Her 
resignation goes into effect October 
9. Oct. 12 she will start her college 
work job at the seminary and school 
starts back again for her on October 

Some of the changes Becky 
Brown felt she has been able to 
make in housing was to work with 
Dean Bosarge in starting the Dorm 
Council again. Another thing she 
strived to do was to get a get a good 
balance between full time house 
directors and graduate assistant 
house directors. 

One major personnel ac- 
complishment came to her mind 
that being the R.A. workshop she 
was able to get held in the spring of 
1981. If she had had more time 
Miss Brown said she wished she 
could get more students in the 

She stated she always has had an 
open door policy. People have 
always been able to come to her 
office, gripe, and receive help from 
her with their problems she feels. 
She maintains though that when 
something cannot be helped that the 
students should be told. Miss 
Brown amusingly stated, "You can 
not make a Hilton out of the dorms, 
but that we can make the best of 
what we have and turn it into a 
learning experience in using what we 

Miss Brown's final thought she 
wanted to leave to the students at 
Northwestern is, "that dorm living 
is a big part of the college ex- 
perience. Long after students have 
forgotten their grades they will 
remember people they lived with in 
the dorm." 

Her personal statement to the 
students is "to see each day as a step 
towards tomorrow." Miss Brown 
in her tenure at Northwestern can 
definitely prove this by the steps she 
has tanek from graduate assistant 
house director, next graduate 
assistant to the director of housing, 
then to graduate assistant to the 
director of housing, then to 
graduate assistant to Director of 
Student Services, finally to the last 
step she was able to make at 
Northwestern that of Coordinator 
of Housing. Now Beck Brown with 
her decision to go to the seminary 
takes one more step towards her 
goal in life. 

Patriotism at NSU 

Patriotism is alive and well at 
NSU. And what could possibly 
spurn such a response from a couple 
of our students? 

In case you haven't noticed, the 
United States flag flying in front of 
the Family Services building (across 
from the Student Union) is 
becoming non-descript. 

As a matter of fact, it's down 
right shabby and tattered. Well, last 
week students Gary Meinhart and 
Paul Jarsabec lodged a complaint 
with Rene Bienvenu's office con- 
cerning the flag. 

"The secretary told us that she 
would notify the proper 
authorities," Meinhart said. 

The flag was then taken down, 

but then reappeared the following 

Upon lodging a subsequent 
complaint with Archie Henderson, 
president of the SUGB, it was 
leaned that the flag (furnished by 
ROTC) had been stolen this 

Captain Amoroso of the ROTC 
was next on the list of our two 
tireless students. 

"We put up the flag as a courtesy, 
we were not required to do so," said 

"We do, however, have a flag 
requisitioned," Amoroso added. 

In the meantime, the old flag, 
possibly in conflict with 
congressional guidelines, can be 
seen flying high over NSU.

SUGB; Fun and Gaines 

Even though the Student Union 
Governing Board at Northwestern is 
one of the two largest organizations 
on campus, Archie Anderson, 
president of SUGB, reports that a 
majority of the student body at 
NSU doesn't know what the Union 
Board is or does. 

The SUGB can be defined as a 
governing organization composed 
of students to program and develop 
activities and entertainment for the 
student body. It is composed of 
eight committees and seven 
representives at large. These 
committees are: Concert Com- 
mittee, Fine Arts Committee, 
Lagniappe Committee, Public 
Relations and Advertising Com- 
mittee, Social Activities Committee, 
Hospitality and Decorations 
Committee, and a committee for the 

Lady of the Bracelet Beauty 

The personal experiences and 
rewards of being a member of the 
SUGB are many, and from 
becoming involved in this 
organizations a student has the 
chance to gain respect, learn about 
leadership and work with different 
kinds of people. 

As stated by this year's president, 
"I think we have the friendliest. I 
would like to invite any people 
interested in the Union Board to 
come to the offices in the Student 
Union to answer any questions on 
joining committees or on programs 
being presented." 

The SUGB at Northwestern is 
always on the lookout for interested 
members and believe that it's never 
too late to participate! 

Forestry Club Gets Charter 

The Forestry and Wildlife 
Conservation Club of Northwestern 
State University has received its 
national charter recognizing the 
organization as student chapter of 
the Soil Conservation Society of 

The national charter was 
presented to the NSU club during 
the Soil Conservation Society of 
America's statewide meeting 
recently in Alexandria. 

Accepting the charter from SCS 
state forester Carl Thompson of 
Alexandria were two of the NSU 
club's officers, president Dewain 
Brewster, sophomore pre-forestry 
major from Shreveport, and 
secretary-treasurer Chirre Kraaz, 
sophomore wildlife management 
major from Natchitoches. 

Northwestern's Forestry and 
Wildlife Conservation Club is 
sponsored locally by the Nat- 
chitoches Soil and Water Con- 
servation District. Dr. Arthur Allen 
and Dr. Charles Viers, professors in 
the Department of Biological 
Sciences, are the club's faculty 
advisors. Benny Dobson, district 
conservationist for the U. S. Soil 
Conservation Service, is the club's 

Allen said student members of the 
NSU Forestry and Wildlife Con- 
servation Club will participate in 
several coordinated conservation 
activities designed to protect the 
natural environment while in- 
creasing the students' awareness of 
basic conservation practices. 

One project tentatively scheduled 
to begin this fall is the drawdown of 
a small lake and rejuvenation for 
wildlife habitat in southern Nat- 
chitoches Parish. Students in the 
club will observe and assist in 
mapping efforts. They will also be 
involved in the grading of the levee 
and in the construction of control 
gates which determine the water 

Allen added that the students will 
assist in the seeding of the banks of 
the levee to prevent erosion. The 
operation will make seed available 
as a food source for dove, quail and 
deer populations, he said. 

Other projects planned for the 
future include the construction, 
seeding and maintenance of a 
crawfish pond, planting Christmas 
trees, outplanting of sawtooth oak 
seedlings, deer checking on wildlife 
management areas, game bird 
census-taking, timber harvesting 
practices, location of problem 
drainage sites and practical ex- 
periences in erosion control 

The NSU Forestry and Wildlife 
Convervation Club has 14 members 
representing academic majors in 
plant and soil science, agri-business, 
forestry, biology, botany, wildlife 
management, agriculture and 

The NSU student organization 
will host the Northwest Region of 
the Louisiana chapter of the Soil 
Conservation Society of America 
Oct. 6 at Northwestern. 

Blood Center Sponsors Drive 

The Louisiana Blood Center will 
sponsor a blood donor drive in the 
Student Union lobby from 9 a.m. to 
4 p.m. Thursday and Friday Sept. 
24 and 25. 

The Center will be seeking student 
donors to give one pint of blood, 
*hich will then be distributed to 
about 50 hospitals in North and 
central Louisiana. All donors will 
receive T-shirts which read, "Put a 
'ittle Demon in everyone... Give 
B 'ood.. .1 did...". 

A trophy will be awarded to the 
Or ganization with the highest 
lumber of donors and a certificate 
l o the organization with the highest 
Percentage of donors. (Students 
should simple indicate the name of 
'heir organization on their donor 
c a«d). 

To encourage competition bet- 
ween organizations, we suggest that 
^ganizations design their own 
Posters for the blood drive. 

To donate blood, students must 
weigh over 110 lbs. and know the 
name of any medication that they 
are presently taking. Those students 
that weigh under 110 lbs. but 
persuade someone to donate, both 
students will receive T-shirts. 

The process of donating blood 
only takes about 15-30 minutes, and 
refreshments are also provided to 

According to the center, college 
students who give blood join the 
Student Blood Assurance Plan. 
Membership in this plan wili reduce 
the cost charged for each pint of 
blood and eliminate the need for 
replacements should blood be 
needed during the coming year by 
the donor of his family. 

For married students, this 
coverage extends to their spouse, 
parents and grandparents, and those 
of their spouse and their tax 
dependent children. 

Wesley Foundation 

Hey! We want to welcome 
everyone to NSU. Have y'all seen 
our building? We're the ones near 
the front entrance with "Go 
Demons" on our windows. We're 
also the ones who distributed fliers 
about ourselves during the first 
week of school. In case you don't 
know about us, we're part of 
campus ministries at NSU. We have 
a comfortable facility to worship, 
study, or just enjoy fellowship. 

We have a delicious supper at 
5:30 every Wednesday, which is 
followed by an interesting, in- 
formative, and sometimes 
humorous program. For example, 
last Wednesday we feasted on fresh 
tacos, and Father Tony Kerrigan 
spoke to us on Northern Ireland. 
Coming up we have Crime 
Prevention, CPR workshop and 

Not only do we meet on Wed- 
nesday, but we also gather for 
Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday at 
7:00. We have church service on 
Sunday evening at 6:00.

Equestrian Team 

The bridleless and saddleless 
equestrian team of Northwestern 
State University performed Sept. 
11-12 at the annual Baton Rouge 
All-Arabian Horse Show. 

Jim Blackert, a sophomore 
equine science major, coaches the 
team under the direction Karen 
Spratt. The bridleless and sad- 
dleless equestrian team was 
established last fall at Nor- 
thwestern. It made its first ap- 
pearance in May at the 20th annual 
Louisiana All-Arabian Horse Show. 
The team is one of the few of its 
kind in the nation. 

The team is getting ready for a 
series of demonstrations that they 
will give Oct. 18-24 at the Arabian 
and Half-Arabian U.S. National 
Championships Horse Show in 
Albuquerque, N.M. There will be 
over 1,700 horses in the national 

"It will be a great honor to be 
able to perform at this event. We 
were chosen, along with two other 
teams of the nation to entertain. 
We will have eight horses and eight 
riders representing our team," 
stated Blackert.

The Word.,. 

September 22, 1981 

Current Sauce 

... The Word is Pub 

Through a joint effort by both the Student Government Association and 
the Student Union Governing Board, Northwestern students, faculty, and 
administrative people may finally get to enjoy a nice quiet, out-of-the-way 
place to sit and relax, listen to soft music and sip a little of their favorite low 
alcoholic drink (i.e. beer). 

The Recreation Complex, already the home of an Olympic-sized 
swimming pool, several tennis courts, and a very nice golf course, will be 
the host of the lounge-pub would satisfy a whole lot of needs if accepted. 
For one thing, low-alcoholic drinks like beer and wine could be served to 
any NSU student for a nomical charge and the student could also order a 
club sandwich, po-boy, or possibly even pizza, and sit down to a nice 
relaxing music and enjoy some eats and drinks. 

The student would not have to listen to charged up dance music like at so 
many other places here in town. The pub would probably be opened two or 
three nights a week, preferably on a Wednesday and Friday night, and 
maybe another night in there somewhere. 

This would keep alot of students in Natchitoches over the weekend in- 
stead of having them to catch the first car back home. 

The proposed pub would also have another advantage that the Nor- 
thwestern "family" has not been able to enjoy in recent years. It would 
give both the students and the faculty a chance to "mingle" together. Now 
the idea of sitting down and discussing your grades with your Economics or 
Anthropology prof, might not catch on at first, but in time it is sure to 
become a hot. 

Other ideas being tossed around for the pub include having a shuttle bus 
run students with no other means of transportation to the complex, and the 
possibility of allowing students to bring one guest at a time to the pub. This 
is for when you have that special someone that you want to share some time 
with, and you don't want to go to the Keg and fight for conversation with 
the tape decks. 

Along with the idea, the SGA will sponsor Alcohol Awareness Seminars 
on a regular basis for any of you who need it. 

There is also consideration giving to having University Police moniter 
and patrol the area. This is to insure peace and quiet. 

The whole idea for a pub-loung of this sort is a fantastic idea that should 
be given serious consideration. Northwestern has long been in desperate 
need of a place like this and with much thanks to SGA and SUGB, who 
have been hard at work to make this dream a reality, Northwestern students 
may finally have a place to go and relax and forget about life for a while. 

SGA Amendments

Radical Rag 

6 Sibley Snatcher ' Strikes 

t he nip in the air seems to be 
telling us that fall has f alien. All 
around campus, people are saying 
that these beautiful clear days and 
crisp nights are perfect football 

Speaking of football, how about 
them Demons! Looks like NSU is 
the place for Chief Caddo too. 

There is a sad chapter to Saturday 
night's game. During he game, 
while students happily cheered the 
team on, a low-life vermon was on 
the prowl, breaking into cars parked 
on Sibley Drive. 

Just how many people were 
robbed, I can't say. But I do know 
that my girlfriend's purse was stolen 
from under the seat of her locked 

We were walking around, trying 
to find the purse, hoping t e 

Snatcher had pitched thefcurse, and 
we talked to a guy who mi that he 
had scared off a man breaking into 
another car just down the street 
from the intramural building. 

He also said it happens all the 
time during Homegames. 

Well, if it's true it really makes 
my blood boil. It isn't that a purse 
with $10 in it was stolen, but that 
some leech is getting away with 
preying on NSU students and 

It is that kind of vermen who give 
small cities like Nate itoches big-city 
crime. But whether it belongs here 
or not, the city does represent easy 

Since most people are not going 
to report a stolen purse, or even 
money stolen from a purse, there is 
no way to tell how many, or in what 

area the Sibley Snatcher worked 
Saturday nigh . But it does make 
you wonder if he hit Prather's 
parking lot, and with it our parents 
and friends. 

How many people are going to 
want to come to any major fu ction 
at Northwestern after dark won- 
dering if they are putting themselves 
at the mercy of a thief? 

There are some safeguards of 
course. Park in a well-lighted area 
when possible. We all know that at 
NSU it is not always possible to 
park in a well lighted area. The 
horsestadles, and Sibley, as well as 
the parking lots of Casperi, Nat- 
chitoches, and the intramural 
building could use some light. 

Also, leave purses and valuables 
in the trunk. Locked do rs didn't 
stop the Sibley Snatcher. 

Lastly, and most importantly, 

Campus Security, WHERE ARE. 
OU& You are certainly busy enough '• 
during the daytime writing tickets i 
Do you think a cruise by troubled i 
dark areas of the campus would : 
stop prowlers? Instead of patrolling i 
the well lighted front of the! 
stadium, why not post officers i n j 
parking lots, or even take a little : 
intiative. Have plain clothed o ficers : 
go undercover to monitor these! 
areas, and nab these pe pie in the! 

Until we show these people that 
this little city isn't go ng to stand for i 
their blood-sucking ways, the ! 
problem will go on. P.S. To alii 
Sibley Snatchers at NSU: all NSU : 
has their eyes and ears open, and 
your crimes will not be allowed to i 
continue. Why not slither back into i 
what ever hole you came from? 

David Stamey's Amazin' Pointz 

Looking Back on Bienvenu 

The retirement of Dr. Bienvenu as 
President of Northwestern starts a 
new era for NSU, hopefully a new 
era for him. He has definitely made 
his job number 1 priorty in his life 
the last four years, and now 
hopefully he can think of himself 
for awhile. 

During his presidency, NSU has 
made many strides forward, 
especially for a period of decreased 

Under his administration NSU 
has experienced many capital outlay 
gains (Fine Arts Complex, Rec 
Complex, Athletic facilities.), 
academic and athletic advances. I 
believe the last two have -to be the 
hardest for any President, to 
achieve that balance between 
academics and athletics. 

I'm not saying all the decisions 
made by President Bienvenu were 
the best ones, but they were 
decisions made with what he 
believed to be in the best interest of 
NSU and his students. 

As a reporter (however so 
meager), I found Dr. Bienvenu to be 
the all-time easiest interview, give 
him one question and he would 

answer that one and and many 

As a student, I found the 
President kept his inauguration 
promise to keep his door open to the 
students. Although it seemed he 
spent more time in Baton Rouge 
than Jerry Stovall, it was necessary. 
When he was available he made time 
for the students. 

The main topic at hand now is the 
selection of a new president and 
what influence we as students can 
have in it. 

The State Board of Trustees has 
made October 15 the deadline for 
receiving applications for the 
positions. I'm sure they will receive 
well over thirty. 

Before the selection committee 
there are now two major choices; to 
take someone presently connected 
with Northwestern, or go outside 
the University and get some "new 

The selection would not have to 
have a Northwestern background, 
but would bringing in the Vice 
President of MIT or Stanford, and 
it taking him two years to fit into the 
svstem be any better? 

The committee also has this 
question before it: Will the 
selection be strictly political,_or will 
the students, faculty, staff, and 
alumni have a say, and how much? 

Personally I don't want Dave or 
Edwin making the choice without 
giving us some imput into the 
decision. Anyway, where have they 
been the past couple of years while 
many of our capital outlays were 
getting shot down. Whats all the 
renewed interest? 

There is a student committee 
being formed as some sort of ad- 
visor to the Board of Trustees. Lets 
hope they will be heard. If the 
students are given an imput we 
definitely need to make the best of 

Between October 15 and probably 
December is the time students can 
make themselves heard. The 
student committee would surely like 
to hear your comments, but there 
are many other ways. Be it by the 
newly formed NSU Free Speech 
Alley, KNWD's "Whats on your 
Mind?", a letter to the Editor, or 
better yet a letter to the State Board 
of Trustees, for the future of NSU 

make a move. 

A new president should not come! 
in owing favors to anyone except the! 
students of NSU. Lets hope thatj 
the candidate that is selected 

Wednesday October 7 will be thd 
first NSU Free Speech Alley. Th$ 
Alley will be held every Wednesday 
from 12:00 to 1:30 at the Student 
Union courtyard. The Alley will be 
brought inside to the lobby in cast 
of rain. 

The Alley, which has been veg 
successful at other State Univer- 
sities, will be sponsored by the SGA. 

It will be moderated by Clifftoo 

Bolgiano and the SGA hope to 
make the Alley a place where ttoe 
students can go and express theft 
opinions and hopefully get some 

The Alley will not be a place 
where all the problems of tlx 
students will be solved, btfl 
hopefully teachers and a& 
ministrators will attend a couple (b 
see for themselves what things cause 
problems for the students and whit 
the students feel can be done to 
correct them. 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

The Search For a Quality Sauce; 

Thoughts while wondering why 
Chief Caddo looked so bored 
Saturday night... 

...It seems an eternity, and in 
many ways it has been, but by the 
calendar it has been but two years 
and a few weeks since I spent most 
of my waking hours tending to the 
business of the Current Sauce. My 
year as Sauce editor was one of 
immeasureable value for me - I 
learned much about myself, my 
university and my profesion while 
working with some of the finest 
people I will ever know - but in 
retrospect, I wonder what business I 
had running the college newspaper 
in the first place. 

Not that the paper was bad, or 
that I was bordering on insanity and 
imcompetentcy (there probably are 
those who would say so), but I don't 
believe Doug Ireland should have 
edited the Sauce in 1979-80. The 
paper that year was, and I say this 
with a great deal of bias, as good as 
any Northwestern student 
newspaper since the Sauce started 
bubbling in 1914. Still, I never 
should have been in charge. 

I was a sophomore when I took 
over from the previous editor, who 
was convinced the secret to the job 
was to run big pictures and never 
hire friends to work with you. We 
didn't run big pictures and I would 
never have survived the year without 
my friends. 

It wasn't that I was some sort of 

whiz kid who took the editorship on 
a multitude of merits. The only 
thing in my favor was that I wanted 
the job. Nobody else did. Pure and 
simple, they had to pick me. 

I don't imagine the Publications 
Committee was too optimistic about 
the prospects for the Sauce that 
year. The only folks on campus 
who thought we'd put out a paper 
every week and do a good job were 
the people on my staff, and we 
didn't know what we were getting 

Before this deteriorates into a 
totally self-serving, egotistical 
column, I'd better get to the point. 
History does repeat itself. Joltin' 
Joe Cunningham is just a 
sophomore as he begins his term as 
editor this fall. 

Joe took the editorship under 
virtually the same conditions as I 
did. We were the only experienced 
holdovers from the previous year's 
staff. And for that matter, David 
La Vere (of "Quatations From 
Editor La Vere" fame, last year) 
reluctantly accepted the post 
because he was the only returning 
staff member. /• 

It's a shame when the editor of 
the college newspaper is somebody 
who has to be talked into taking the 
job. But here at NSU in the past 
decade, that's exactly how it's been. 

The university has been fortunate 
in the past to have some extremely 
capable persons become involved in 
student publications and par- 

ticularly the Current Sauce. But 
until recently, the administration 
has not given the journalism 
department ample support and it's 
hard to understand why. 

Although the journalism program 
here has not in the past maintained a 
large number of majors, it did 
produce Current Sauce staffers who 
put together a publicaton which 
until 1980 found its way into over 
100 high schools in the state. 

The Sauce was displayed in high 
school libraries and sent to prep 
newspaper, giving the university 
invaluable exposure. Un- 
fortunately, in at least two years the 
quality of the paper was poor and 
when it was displayed next to The 
Tech Talk and NLU's Pow Wow, it 
suffered in the inevitable com- 
parison. I know, because I was in 
high school in 1976 and 1977 and 
was puzzled with the inept NSU 

The reason for that ineptitude 
was there were not enough com- 
petent journalism students to staff 
the Sauce back then. That resulted 
from the inadequate administration 
support of the journalism program. 
Thankfully, since then things have 
changed for the better 

The recently-established Mass 
Communications department has 
enormous potential and has already 
attracted some promising and 
talented students. The future for 
the year-old program is bright and 

as it grows and improves so will the 

But even as optimism is at a| 
optimum for the Sauce com 
reasons for disillusionment. 

The Sauce is not being displayed 
in high school libraries anymore 
because financial difficulties forced: 
cutbacks in the mailing list, among 
other areas. Business manage 
David Stamey and I thought the bill 
for the prep mailing list should have 
been the responsiblity of the High 
School Relations department all 
along, so we asked it to assume the 
cost. We were refused. 

The logic, if there is any, behind 
that refusal escapes me. But I' ve 
never understood much of vvha' 
goes on in that office, and obviously 
not a lot of high school students 
have either. 

Sauce readers have had to develop 
patience over the years since tW 
paper's quality has been a hit-and- 
miss proposition, based on lhc 
talent of that year's staff. 

Whether this year's Sauce will bf 
a hit or a miss remains to be see^ 
but in three or four years tt,e 
evolution of the Mass Co" 1 ' 
munications department shot" 
spoil Sauce readers by provide 
more than enough compel 

students to produce a consistei 
excellent newspaper. 

Until then, we'll just have to 
what Joe does, and I used to, e v 


week --cross your fingers and hop? 
for the best...

Monday night in Prather 
Coliseum, Daryl Hall and John 
Oates will be demonstrating their 
unique blend of pop, rock, and 
soul, a combination of sounds 
which has resulted in enormous 
success on RCA Records for this 
New York City-based duo. 

The Hall and Oates concert at 
Northwestern, scheduled for 8 p.m. 
under the sponsorship of the NSU 
Student Union Governing Board, 
more than likely will feature several 
selections from their new album, 
"Private Eyes.," 

"Singles off the "Private Eyes" 
album which are being promoted as 

hits for Hall and Oates include "I 
Can't Go For That," "Private 
Eyes," "Did It In A Minute" and 
"Head Above Water." 

Hall and Oates' newest album for 
RCA Records is being described as a 
"natural extension of the tuneful 
rock and soul catchiness that made 
their last album, "Voices," such a 
huge success." 

The "Voices" also for RCA 
Records, not only went gold but 
yields four hit singles, three of 
which hit the top 10 and another, 
"Kiss on My List," captured the 
number one spot and earned gold 

The appearance of Hall Oates at 
Northwestern is the first of three 
concerts in Louisiana next week and 
is part of an extended tour of the 
United States planned to coincide 
with the release of "Private Eyes," 
the duo's second self-produced 
album and their 11th since 1972. 
Following their U.S. tour, Hall and 
Oates will be touring in Australia, 
New Zealand, Japan, England, and 
various European countries. 

Hall and Oates, who were born in 
Philadelphia and currently live in 
Greenwich Village, realized their 
first smash hit with "She's Gone" 
off their second album, "Aban- 

doned Lucheonette." 

They have been recording for 
RCA Records since 1975, and four 
of their last six RCA albums have 
earned gold designation. Two 
singles, "Sara Smile" and "Rich 
Girl," also went gold for them. 

Tickets for the Hall and Oates 
concert at Northwestern are priced 
at $7 at the coliseum box office the 
night of the performance and $5 
when purchased in advance in 
Natchitoches at the NSU Student 
Union, University Sounds and 
Speciality Sound Company, at the 
NSU campus at Fort Polk and at the 
NSU nursing campus at 1800 
Warrington Place in Shreveport.

Student Safety Discussed With Cinema-Focus 

Concern for the safety of students 
in the crowded Kyser Auditorium, 
poor quality in movie projection 
volume, and a dispute over the film 
"American Gigalo" brought 
criticism to the Cinema Focus 
Committee at the Student Union 
Governing Board meeting on 
Monday, Sept. 15. 

"I've been there when there 
wasn't even standing room", said 
Mr. Wislon, the SUGB Advisor, 
referring to the large crowds at- 
tracted to the weekly SUGB movies 
shown in Kyser Auditorium. 

Mr.. Wilson expressed his concern 
over the safety of allowing students 
to sit in the aisles during the movies. 
He told the Board that someone 
should contact the Fire Marshall to 
check on the building's capacity. 

"There's bound to be a limit to 
the amount of people you can crowd 
in there", said Mr. Wison. 

Complaints over the volume 
quality at the movies were directed 
to acting Cinema Focus Committee 
Chairman, Jax Nosecheese. . Ms. 
Nosecheese admitted that she was 
aware of complaints, and said that 
she was working on it. No details 
were given. 

The movie "American Gigalo" 
aroused a lively discussion over 

whether scenes from the movie had 
been cut out. the Board that the 
uncut version of the movie was 
ordered, but one member insisted 
that "There was this one scene, I 
was waiting for it, it was like it was 
just left out". 

Plans were made to check with 
the film company to see if the movie 
received had been cut. 

In other action taken, the band 
"Rainbow was approved for the 
Oct. 3 Street Dance, and the Lady 
of the Bracelet Director and an SGA 
representative to the SUGB were 
sworn in. 

"Rainbow", a contemporary 
band whose lead singer, Gary 
Savage played with the band "Billy 
Pendalton and Earth", was voted to 
play at the Oct. 3 Street Dance that 
the SUGB spon sors. The band will 
cost $750, and they won't get paid if 
they are not there on time. 

The Lady of the Bracelet Director 
for 1981, Sharri Barron was sworn 
in. Mr. Wislon expressed pleasure in 
Ms. Barron's position, and said 
"I'd compare the beauty pagent 
(LOB( that these students put on to 
the Ms. Lousisiana pagent." 

The new SGA representative, 
Stacey Maddox, was sworn in as a 
voting member of the SUGB. 

In other business, it was an- 
nounced that Hall and Oates may 
eat in the Student Union Cafateria 
on the night of the concert , and that 
tickets for the concert are now on 

Concert tickets may be purchased 
at Specialty Sound, University 
Sound, and possibly at several

Chemistry and Physics A warded Grant 

A $3,000 grant from Petroleum 
Associates of Lafayette, Inc., to 
support electrochemical research at 
Northwestern State University has 
been presented to The NSU 
Department of Chemistry and 

John Tully, manager of research 
and development at Petroleum 
Associates, said the award to 
Northwestern is the first of an 
annual grant program his company 
is establishing for the advancement 
of sciences and modern technology 
at NSU. 

The research grant will be used to 

support Dr. Charles Lynn BisselPs 
research study of electrochemical 
and corrosion properties of high 
density salt water. 

Bissell, professor of physical 
chemistry, said information ob- 
tained from the project will be of 
significant value to the oil and gas 
industry, particularly in high- 
pressure oil well drilling operations. 

A member NSU's chemistry and 
physics since 1965, Bissell has been 
engaged for many years in advanced 
electrochemical and corrosion 
research studies. He is active in

Hello, my name is Doyle Primm. I am about to open 
the Shoe Den, in the Dixie Plaza Shopping Center, 
and would like to talk to you about shoes for a few 
seconds. You all know that Natchitoches has seen a lot 
of ladies shoe stores come and go over the past few 
years, and I believe there are several reasons for this, 
one being the lack of selection of quality fashion 
footwear at affordable prices, a fun and enjoyable place 
to shop, and friendly knowledgeable sales people that 
are not interested only in selling you a pair of shoes, but 
are really trying to be sure you are happy with your 
purchase. I believe that I have combined all three of 
these ingredients for you in my new store that is now 
open. We will be handling a full line of CONNIE 
SHOES, along with CANDIES, JOLENE, and some of 
my own creations — designed with shoes n stuff. I 
believe that we have an exciting selection for you and 
would appreciate your stopping by and let me, Lisa, or 
Mary show you what we mean. We'll be looking 
forward to seeing you. . . Thank you.

Its My Turn ... 

by Bob Sjoberg 


Can we fill Turpin Stadium ? 

Its that time of year again when 
college football runs rampant 
throughout the country. 

Many attendance records are set 
nationwide... 104,000 in Ann Arbor, 
Michigan; 88,000 at Columbus, 
Ohio; and 70,000 in Austin, Texas. 

Of course you will never ex- 
perience a crowd that size here in 
Natchitoches, but don't you think 
there could be an improvement in 
the 7,000 per game average which 
have gone through the turnstiles the 
past few years. Remember, Turpin 
stadium seats 16,000. And those 
seats were put there for one reason, 
to be filled. Or can they be filled? 

So what is the problem? 
' Since being raised in Minnesota, 
I've been accustomed to seeing large 
crowds turn out on a Saturday 
afternoon. However, the University 
of Minnesota is the second large 
school in the nation, and being a Big 
Ten member, competition is never a 
problem with Michigan, Ohio State, 
and Purdue coming to town. You 
can also throw in non-conference 
opponents such as Nebraska, USC, 
and UCLA to highlight your season. 

I'm spoiled to say the least... 

You expect a city of 500,000 to 
have success in drawing crowds, 
especially when your school is in a 
major football conference. 

But on the other side of the coin, 
what about a town of 18,000? 

I've been through many cities 
with a population of 20-25,000, and 
they have no universities. 

For a city the size of Natchitoches 
to come close to filling up a 16,000 

seat stadium, three things have to 

First, help has to come from your 
larger media ou tlet s in Shreveport, 
Alexandria, and Monroe to generate 
some regionalized interest. Easier 
said than done. 

Shreveport media tend to lean 
toward Louisiana Tech and 
Grambling, because they play a 
more "interesting" schedule with 
the Baylors and the SMUs. Their 
sports staffs would undoubtedly like 
to cover a well-known I-A school 
than, for example, a Stephen F. 
Austin or a New York Tech. 

Monroe, of course, has Northeast 
in its own backyard, so coverage 

will be limited for Northwestern. So 
that leaves us with Alexandria. 

Alex is a big disappointment. The 
Talk can't send a reporter 50 miles 
to the north, however they can send 
three to cover LSU, 110 miles away 
to the south. It looks like we're 
fighting a losing battle, doesn't it? 

Second, an effort has to be done 
to get quality opponents into 
Turpin. That, however, is not easy, 
especially if your are a I-AA in- 

There are few I-AA schools in the 
area, and none are real "drawing 
cards'-' So unless you can 

get a Grambiing back on the 
schedule, or a Tulane; you are never 
going to get the prospective fan's 
attention from outside the city. 
Another solution is to get into a 
conference. (This is hoped to 
become a reality soon.) 

You will get fans from 100 miles 
away to see a Tulane play, but not 
an Angelo State. Its hard to get a 

top name school to play here, but it 

can be done. 

Finally, its up to you, the student 
body. Come to the games, support 
your school, and he lp promot e the 
team. Yes, you can help promote 
the team by spreading the word to 
your friends and relatives. If every 
student on campus brought in two 
people apiece to the game, we 
wouldn't have to rely on too much 
on outside help. 

The Demons have an exciting 
football team to watch, and deserve 
as much support as possible. 

No, Turpin doesn't have to be 
filled to capacity every week, but if 
everyone does their part, we would 
come awfully close. 

Its a win-lose situation. All three 
steps mentioned have to be im- 
proved upon. If not, NSU can sell 
half the seats in Turpin Stadium to 
make same profit. They wouldn't 
be needed anyway. 

Editor's Note: I would really like 
to hear some of your comments on 
what you think could increase at- 
tendance, or any other sports topic, 
college or professional, you have on 
your mind. Just drop your idea(s) 
by the Current Sauce office. 


Every year, thousands of students 
nationwide are temporarily forced 
to interrupt their college education. 

* If this has happened 
to you, the Army may be able 
to help you return to school. 

We have a lot 
to offer young 
people today. 

If you are uncertain about your future, 
find out more about Army opportunities

NSU Uses Big Play To 
Dispose of SFA 42-13 

by Bob Sjoberg 

The aerial show piloted by 

Bobby Hebert and Eric Barkley put 
in a performance for the second 
consecutive weekend at Turpin 

Just as it was in the previous 
week's win over Angelo State, both 
quarterbacks hooked up for long 
touchdown passes in_NSU's 42-13 
triumph over Stephen F. Austin. 

Hebert was involved in three 
Demon scores; his own four yard 
run, and two touchdown strikes, 
one of seven yards to Carlton 
Finister, and a 48 yard strike to 
James Bennett. 

The Demons got things started 
off on a big play. After SFA was 
stymied by the NSU defense, Mike 
Wood dropped back into punt 
formation and then another familiar 
scene from the Angelo State game 
evolved. Michael Richardson, who 
blocked a punt the previous week, 
had a little Deju-vu. 

Richardson came in from the 
right side and easily spiked the ball 
away from the stunned punter, then 
scooped it up and cruised into the 
end zone. Dale Quickel added the 
PAT, and with 13:03 left in the first 
quarter, the Demons led 7-0. 

On the next Lumberjack 
possession, Wood was victimized 
again. Standing on the SFA 30, the 
ball went right through his hands 
and rolled all the way back to the 14 
where he was snowed under. 

NSU couldn't move the ball, and 
on fourth and four, Hebert under 
threw James Bennett in the end 
zone, turning the ball back to SFA. 

The visitors then promptly 
returned the favor... Fullback 
Jimmy Kegler fumbled on a second 
and six play from the Jacks' 12, and 
Sam Jenkins recovered at the 13. 

Helped by a pass interference call 
which negated a SFA interception, 
the Demons cashed into make it 14- 
at the 5:03 mark as Carlton 
Finister dove over from the one. 

Finister's run capped a three play-13 
yard drive 

SFA, bolstered by the passing of 
quarterback Dale Horton, who was 
21-43 for 216 yards on the night, 
moved the ball 75 yards, from its 
won 17 to the NSU 8 when disaster 
struck once again. On the first play 
from scrimmage in the second 
quarter, Horton tossed a screen into 
the right flat for Kegler. Kegler 
scooted to the outside and was hit at 
the four. The ball popped loose and 
linebacker Gary Reasons pounced 
on it at the NSU 1. 

Reasons' fumble recovery 
spurned added incentive in the 
Demons, as they proceeded to 
march 99 yards in 19 plays to go up 
21-0. Hebert was the catalyst in the 
drive, firing passes of 16 yards to 
Jerry Wheeler, 17 to Duper, and the 
touchdown throw of seven yards to 
Finister with 7:07 to go in the half. 

Even though NSU seemed to be 
somewhat lackluster on offense in 
the first half, the Demons were up 
by three touchdowns, and were 
going for more. 

Moving from its own five, 
following a 51 yard punt by Wood, 
NSU drove to the SFA 38 where the 
drive stalled as four Hebert passes 
fell incomplete. 

Then Horton had :20 left before 
intermission to rally his forces, but 
fired three incomplete passes of his 
own which ended the half with the 
Demons on top 21-0. 

If you thought the Lumberjacks 
were to roll over and play dead in 
the second half, you were wrong. 

Following a SFA punt, NSU 
started off at its own 25. And the 
drive ended as quick as it started. 
Jacks' linebacker Glen Matejka 
stepped in front of an Hebert pass 
and ran it back to the Demon 20. 

Six plays later, helped by a 10 
yard Horton to Leneal Wildridge 
toss, Kegler barrelled over from a 
yard out. Ron Roberson tacked on 
the PAT, and with 10:59 remaining 
in the third stanza, SFA was back in 
the game 21-7. 

After each team traded 
possessions, the Demons figured it 
was time for a key play, and they 
got it. 

On a third and seven call from his 
own 31, Horton dropped back to 
pass, and threw deep over the 
middle. The ball hit Duan Hanks in 
the halmet and deflected right to 
Sonny Louis, who ran it from the 
NSU 25, back to the 39. 

SFA's defense stiffened and Leo 
Clement punted to Clynell An- 
derson, who immediately fumbled 
the ball away at his own 18 with 
Kevin Stafford recovering, giving 
NSU once again excellent field 

This time the Demons took 
advantage of the miscue. Hebert 
began to run the option with success 
as the junior signal-caller carried the 
pigskin all but two of the 18 yards in 
the touchdown drive, including the 
final four which upped the count to 

Yet, at this point, the Lum- 
berjacks did not fold. Horton 
connected on four long passes in a 
67 yard drive which closed the gap 
to 28-13. Hanks caught three of the 
throws, including one for the final 
10 yards, and the s jore. The run for 
two points failed, and with 9:45 left 
in the third quarter, SFA was still in 

But as soon as the Lumberjacks 
got too close, NSU always found a 
way to dim their hopes. And as 
soon as Hebert stepped on the field 
for the next series, those hopes were 
to be silenced for food. 

Following the kickoff, from their 
24, it only took the Demons five 
plays to cover the 76 yards to make 
it 35-13. Hebert found Bennett 
twice; the first for 25 yards, and the 
second for 48 yards and six points. 
And with 7:13 remaining in the third 
period, NSU was in command. 
Chief Caddo would not have to 
worry about making the trip to 
Nacogdoches for another year.

Demons To Face 
Abilene Christian 

Current Sauce Porker Pickers 

The Northwestern State Demons 
travel to Abilene, Texas to meet 
Abilene Christian University this 
Saturday for their only game away 
from Turpin Stadium in a five week 
span which dates to September 12. 

Following the Abilene Christian 
contest, NSU returns home for back 
to back games with East Texas State 
and McNeese State. 

In the series matchup between the 
two clubs, ACU leads 3-1. 
However, the Demons won last 
season's battle in convincing style, 
31-10, and hope to duplicate their 
performance this weekend. 

The Wildcats of ACU carried a 1- 
record (A 15-14 win over Northern 
Colorado) into last Saturday's game 
at Northwestern Oklahoma, while 
NSU sported a 1-1 mark heading 
into this past weekend's clash with 
Stephen F. Austin. 

ACU Coach Ted Sitton has 34 
returning lettermen, including 14 
starters back from last year's 2-8 

According to Sitton, the Wild- 
cats' season was hampered due to 
injuries and inexperience. He hopes 
that 1980 was learning tool to help 
mold his forces. 

The success of ACU rests on the 
arm of quarterback Kelly West. 
West, a 6-1, 165 lb. junior was 
converted from a defensive back 
position midway through the 1980 
season when regular signal-callers 
Keith Pappas and Baylor Brown 
went down with injuries. In his first 

game against Angelo State, he hit on 
12 of 26 passes for 231 yards and 
two touchdowns. West has been a 
starter ever since. 

Willie Kerley, a 6-2, 190 lb., 
soph., tailback; and Larry Hen- 
derson (5-11, 183 lb., soph., 
fullback), team with West in the 
backfield. Kerley, who was anmed 
1980 Lone Star Conference 
Freshman of the Year, ran for 53 
yards (4.2 yds./ca.) last year, and 
Henderson added 328 yards on the 
ground plus seven pass receptions 
for 108 additional yards. 

Defensively, the Wildcats seem 
fairly set. Mike Funderburg, a 6-0, 
220 lb., soph., linebacker is being 
tabbed by Sitton as having the 
potential to be one of the best in the 
conference. He has since been 
moved to end for the start of 1981 
and is expected to comeback strong. 

Flores, a 6-1, 230 lb., junior is 
touted as one of the best in the LSC. 
As freshman at the University of 
New Mexico, Flores was a part time 
starter, and since transferring to 
ACU, has stepped in as a starter 
right away. 

On the other side of the ledger, 
NSU's offense is moving into high 
gear. Following the 59-26 romp 
over Angelo State, the Demons (Not 
including the Stephen F. Auston 
game) were ranked third nationally 
in scoring and seventh in passing 
offense, according to latest statistics 
released by the NCAA. 

Bobby Hebert continues to lead 
the NSU offense and will receive 
plenty of support from Carlton 
Finister, Kenny Jones, and Victor 
Oatis. Mike Camden and Gary 
Reasons continue to sparkle on 

Kickoff is at 7:30 (KDBH-FM, 
pre-game at 7:00), from Shotwell 
Stadium in Abilene.

Mascot Has Perfect Week, Panel Regulars Go 9-1 

pirits were obviously high at the 
weekly meeting of the Current 
Sauce Porker Pickers as PP 
regulars, Bob Sjoberg, jdavid 
Stamey, Joe Cunningham, and Dr. 
Ray Baumgardner strolled into the 
Current Sauce offices. 

Each of the regulars had gone 9-1 
for the weekend's games and each 
were feeling rather cocky. Guest 
selector Wendy Wyble bounced into 
the office about two minutes later, 
followed by her boyfriend-baseball 
player Dean Napoli. 

Wyble was upset that her record 
(8-2) left her out of first place in the 
rankings. Napoli was upset and he 
demanded that Sports Editor 

Sjoberg reverse the score so that 
Wendy could have a share of first 
place. When Sjoberg refused to do 
so, Napoli swung his bat wildly at 
Sjoberg. Fortunatly for Bob, he had 
just dropped his stuffed Minnesota 
Gopher and was bending down to 
pick it up. 

Napoli's wild swing struck The 
Demon Mascot who had just walked 
into the room. It was Napoli's first 
hit in two year's. The room was 
deathly quiet as the Mascot 
recovered from Napoli's outburst, 
but when he recovered, the Demon 
Mascot asked Napoli who had 
taught him to bunt. 

When Napoli said that his swing 

was natural, the Mascot just 
laughed and then announced that he 
had just gone 10-0 for the week. 
David Stamey was speechless. 
"How can anyone who has been in 
school since even before Doug 
Ireland, know how to pick football 
games like tht?" 

Cunningham was even further 
incensed, noting that the Mascot 
had picked Michigan over Notre 
Dame. " What are you, a $*&'C%*! 
atheist or something?" he Demon 
managed a weak smile. 

Through all of this, Dr. 
Baumgardner and the third celebrity 
panelist, Janet Hymes had remained 
rather quite. It was only then that 

Stamey noticed that the Current 
Sauce radio was on and 
Baumgardner and Hymes were 
dancing to Rick James' "Kinky 
Girl" record. 

Shortly thereafter, the meeting 
broke up. But not befo re Sjoberg 
jumped up to announce that this 
week's celebrity panelist's would be 
David Saylor's, a baseball of 
Napoli. Saylor's was featured last 
year in the Sauce's Lampoon edi- 
tion. Also picking this week will be 
Kaye Henley who dates a former 
baseball player, and Marilyn does 
not play baseball for the Demons, 
but she doesn' t even date a baseball 

Demons — SFA 

continued from page 7 

If that wasn't enough to put the 
Lumberjacks away, there was more 
to come. 

Spencer Mallett picked off 
Horton late in the game to squelch 
their last threat of the game, and 
give the Demons the ball at their 
own 33. 

Then Barkley, wasting no time to 
get into the scoring act, cranked up 
and fired the ball 50 yards down- 
field toward the fleet-footed Duper, 



who grabbed it in stride and waltzed 
into the end zone at the 4: 1 1 mark to 
end the scoring. 

Coach A. L. Williams said that 
"he was pleased with the victory", 
even though he wasn't happy with 
the way the offense or defense 

Hopefully, the Demons can 
please Williams all the way around 
this Saturday, when they travel to 
Abilene Christian.

Sampite Presents Chaplin's Lake Proposal 

Natchitoches Mayor Joe Sapite 
presented the City's proposed 
Chaplin Lake sludge solution at the 
SGA meeting on Sept. 21 . 

"I'm mad as hell. ..I didn' ap- 
preciate it myself when I was a 
student here... but it happened a 
long time ago," said Sampite on the 
sludge problem at Chaplin's Lake. 

The two-part proposal will cost 
an extimated $800 thousand, will be 
submitted to Governor Treen's 
aides by campus and city 
representatives and engineers on 
Thursday, Sept. 24 in Baton Rouge. 

The plan, which would clean out 
the lake and provide an alternative 
dumping site for the sludge, will 
require state funds for the project. 

In other action, a bill which 
would require all students who run 
in elections to pay a $10 filing fee 
was passed by the SGA, election 
results from Sept. 16 were accepted, 
and Helene Morgan was sworn in as 
the Spirit Committee Chairman. 

Russell Williams introduced a bill 
that made mandantorv all students 

running for elections by a $10 fee. 

The fee, which would be refunded 
if election signs were taken down 
within 72 hours of the election, but 
not if they were not taken down. 

"You can do that, and if you can 
get the money, fine... but you can't 
deny a student the right to run if he 
can't come up with the money", 
said Parlimentarian Clifton 

The bill was passed with one 
dissenting vote. 

Results from the Sept. 16 election 
were approved by the SGA. Ernie 
Cole, Graduate Senator, and Vick 
WillmLewis, Senior Senator were 
sworn in by President Joe Stamey. 

A tentative State Fair Week 
schedule was announced by Pre- 
sident Joe Stamey.

Bolgiano announce the Free Speech 

Alley would begin on Wed., Oct. 7, 
from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. 

"The sky is not the limit, you can 
talk about outerspace if you want", 
said Bolgiano about topics for the 

The location for the Alley will be 
somewhere in the Student Union, 
reported Bolgiano, although it had 
not been decided exactly where. 

In Homecoming announcements, 
David Stamey, Homecoming 
Director, gave the total 
Homecoming budget as $504. 

"If the students want to get in- 
volved, it's there," reported Stamey 
on the schedule of Homecoming 

He said that $300 in door prizes 
would be given out at "Meet the 
Team Night", and quarter beer 
with snacks would be available.

Coliseum as the speaker from the Distinguished Lecture Series. 
Mcgovern told students that he is deliberatly seeking out inv- 
itations in the south so that he can learn more about the so- 
uthern way of life. 

Two-Part Proposal 


"Hopefully the state will fund the 
whole thing, ...if they will fund a 
large portion of it, I'll find some 
way to come up with the rest of it", 
said Powell. 

Powell said that the local group 
of city officials and engineers and 
campus representatives met with 
Senator Don Kelley, Representative 
Jimmy Long, Chief Engineer for the 
State, Art Theis, and the Special 
Assistant to the Governor. 

"I felt very positive when I left, it 
looks very feasable", said Powell, 
adding, "It should take no longer 
than three to six months to clean the 
lake and correct the problem if we 
get the money".

The City of Natchitoches has 
proposed a two-part solution for the 
sludge problem at Chaplin's Lake, 
and has submitted the plan for state 
funding to a top aid of Governor 
Dave Treen's. Governor Treen is 
expected to make a decision on 
funding by Oct. 7. 

The proposal, which will cost an 
extimated $800 thousand was 
presented to Kenneth Beoubay, 
Special Assistant to the Governor, 
and will be submitted to Treen on 
Oct. 7.

SUGB Elections Held 

Special elections for vacant 
positions on the Student Union 
Governing Board were held 
Monday, September 21 during a 
meeting which lasted nearly three 

Filling the empty positions for 
committee chairmen are: Jay 
Noschese for Cinema Focus; Sherry 
Leyzer for Hospitality and 
Decorations; and Charlene Elvers 
for Public Relations and Ad- 

Aside from these vacancies there 
were also two Representative-at- 
large positions open with seven 
students competing for them. It was 
this election and the strong com- 
petition at this point that forced the 
meeting into overtime. 

After speaking with all seven 
candidates separately, a discussion 
followed on whom the Board felt 
would do the best job. The list was 
then narrowed to four in a runoff 
and the next vote showed Jack 
Welch with a clear majority and 
Lytton Allen and Kay Harris in the 

final runoff. 

Voting continued for several 
more rounds but the Board was 
deadlocked on these two candidates. 
Due to late hour and the SUGB 
Constitution, which states that all 
candidates in a special election must 
receive a two-thirds majority vote, it 
was decided that each candidate be 
questioned once again. 

Finally, after much debate and 
suggestions of tabling the election 
until next week or creating an extra 
Representative-at-Large position, 
the Board decided on Lytton Allen 
as their choice even though both 
candidates were estremely qualified 
for the position. 

Although it was a long and tiring 
evening, the Union Board was 
please with all of the candidates and 
the level of competition for each 

The SUGB would like to thank 
these students for running and urge 
them, along with any other in- 
terested student, in joining a 
committee and getting involved.

Northwestern Enrollment Tops 6700, Sets New Record 

Northwestern State Univeristy 
President Rene Bienvenu an- 
nounced that fall semester 
enrollment at NSU reached a record 
6,722, the highest is the 97 year 
history of the university. The fall 
registration total is an increase of 
803 students over the enrollment of 
the fall semester of 1980. 

According to Austin Temple, 
NSU Registrar, the largest increase 
was in the College of Graduate 
Studies and Research, with 2,025 
students, up 720 from last fall. 

Undergraduate enrollment is 
4,698 students, up 371 from fall of 

Four of the university's seven 
colleges reported increases over last 
fall. The Colleges of Graduate 
Studies and Research, Business, 
Nursing, Science and Technologies, 
all reported increases in their 

The breakdown by colleges shows 
808 in the college of Science and 
Technology, 1,182 in Business, 882 
in Nursing, 412 in Liberal Arts, 688 
in Education, 760 in Basic Studies 
and Academic Services. 

This year's enrollment figures 
report that 3,961 men are enrolled, 
and 2,761 women are enrolled. 

All undergraduate classes showed 
increases in enrollment. The 
University reports 969 seniors, 800 
junior, 840 sophmores, and 2,088 

Figures from the Dean of 
Students' office report that 137 
full time students are enrolled on the 
NSU campus. 

Students living on the campus are 
reported to be 1350, by Becky 
Brown, Director of Housing. In- 
cluding Shreveport students, 1450 
students are living in Northwers 

Another breakdown of figures 
shows 144 students holding meal 
tickets for Ibberville, and 298 

students with variable meal tickets. 

Bienvenu attributed the 
enrollment increase to the diligence 
of faculty and staff members in 
upgrading academic programs and 
other university services, and it also 
demonstrates the success of efforts 
by university personnel, students, 
alumni, and other firends of 
Northwestern to attract new stude- 
nts to NSU. 

Mayor Joe Sampite, when 
contacted about the increase, said, 

"I'd like to give the biggest credit to 
the NSU students who are the best 
recruiters, and the attitudes of the 
faculty campus, and to Dr. 
Bienvenu who has worked so hard, 
and to the Pitt Program". 

Sampite added that the Chamber 
of Commerce, the Industrial 
Committee and Tourist Depart- 
ment, as well as the town of Nat- 
chitoches have joined in to promote 
the university 100%.

Demon Mascot Kidnapped ! 

The Northwestern State 
University Demon Mascot was kid- 
napped by three masked intruders 

around 4:30 a.m. today. 

According to his roommate, who 
wishes to remain anonymous, he, 

The Demon Mascot 

"Woke up to a loud noise and saw 
three masked shadows 
carrying out the Demon." 

When asked if he had any ideas 
about who kidnapped the Mascot, 
his roommate said that he didn't 
know, but he wished that they 
would bring him back because the 
bills are due. 

After the first reports of the 
kidnapping, KNWD's Clifton 
Bolgiano told reporters that he had 
received a phone call from an ab- 
viously disturbed woman 
threatening to kidnap the Demon 
Mascot just hours before the 
Mascot was abducted. 

Several hours later after the first 
news reports of the kidnapping were 
broadcast over the radios, Bolgiano 
was again contacted, apparently by 
the same person, who directed him 
to act as the laisson between the 
kidnappers and the police. 

Bolgiano, who was visibly 
shaken, declined any further c- 
omment to reporters. 

Chief James K. Lee, of the 
University Police said that his 
department had every avalaible man 
on the case. Lee also said that his 
department, while not having a clear 
suspect , did have some definite 
leads into the case. Lee refused 
further comment on the incident 
except to say that the Mascot would 
be found. "I base the reputation of 
my department on it," he said. 

In a related matter, Natchitoches 
Parish Sheriff, Norm Fletcher, a 
former NSU play-by-play an- 
nouncer for both the football and 
basketball teams, said that his 
department was doing all it could 
with the case, but that most of their 
men were staking out another 
marijuana field in Campti. 
Chief-of-Police for the City of 

Natchitoches, James Reichel said 
earlier today while investigating the 
abducton that his department did 
not have much to go on, but that 
they would do everything possible to 
get the Mascot back. 

Reickel also announced that 
anyone having any information 
leading to the arrest and conviction 
of the guilty parties should leave 
word with Richard Filet at KNWD. 

Back at Northwestern, NSU 
President Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu 
expressed total shock and 
disbelief," and pledged Nor- 
thwestern's full cooperation with 
the various law enforcement 
agencies involved with the case. 

Dr. Bienvenu issued an appeal to 
the kidnappers saying, "The 
Northwestern Demon Mascot is an 
intrical part of this institution. He 
is more than a representative of the 
students, he is a represenation of the 
University itself." 

Dr. Bienvenu was clearly upset 
that such a violent act could have 
lent its name to Northwestern and 
declined all further comment on the 
kidnapping, except to say that he 
hopes the Mascot is found soon 
because the suit cost the University 
$300 in cleaning fees and it was not 

Witnesses close to the in- 
vestigators at the scene of the crime 
stated that the only tangible 
evidence in the case was a single old 
brown work glove and some broken 

With rumors going wild at this 
point, it would be pure speculation 
to try and guess names and places, 
but one thing is generally agreed 
upon. The person or persons who 
took the Demon mascot are in- 
deed. ..SICK.

Dr. John Hix Wins "Best Teacher" Award in Sauce Survey 

Dr. John Hix, Professor in the 
Business Administration Depart- 
ment, has been selected by the 
Northwestern students as the best 
teacher at NSU.

Robert Daspit of Biology, Mr. Neil 
Cameron of English, Dr. Stan 
Chadick of Math, Mrs. Judy Boone 
of Business Education, and Dr. 
Dennis O'Neal of Mass Com- 

Some of the comments received 
for the best teacher include: 

Dr. Baumgardner-"He's hard, 
but he is fair. His classes aren't 
boring because he jumps up and 
down and acts like a crazy man if it 
takes it. The best teacher I have 
ever had." 

Dr. Hix-"His classes are in- 

teresting, never boring. He is 
helpful in and out of class. He is 
sensitive to special needs, yet not a

There were some other interesting 
comments for best teacher. We will 
let these teachers remain 

-He is the best teacher because he 
doesn't take roll on Friday. 

-Just seems like the kinda guy 
you could go out and do some 
serious drinking with. 

And now for the moment you 
have all been waiting for; NSU's 
worst teacher, well we will just keep 
you hanging on that one because it 
could tend to get us in trouble. We 
will give some of the comments why 
certain students thought their 
nominee is NSU's worst teacher. 

-Where did they get their 

teaching certificates? at a K-Mart 
Blue light special? (for Co-Worst 

-Is always criticizing NSU 
(What? at a time when the Place for 
You is NSU). 

-Treats her students like they're 
very dumb and she has all the sense. 

-Will give you a pop quiz and 
count it as a major test. 

-Craooy, treats students like first 
graders, loves to embarrass 

-Spends more time discussing 
her family life than the subject. 
-Is a very hateful teacher. 
-She is a boring witless twit. She 
wouldn't excuse you from class if 
you were dead. 

-1 can do without vulgarity in the 

—Her blatant discrimination 
against non athletes is at the very 
least unethical and definitely 
qualifies her as the worst teacher. 

-Never available after class. 

The teacher who receives the title 
of worst teacher will receive 
notification of the win, loss?, and a 
sheet of comments that were turned 
in. It will not be made public. 

In all fairness to the teachers, the 
"Current Sauce" will take all en- 
tries for best and worst students 
until next Friday. Our office is 
located on the second floor of 
Keyser Hall. 

Thank you for the tremendous 
response to our first poll.

The Word... 

September 29, 1981 
Current Sauce 

... The Word is Best Teacher 

The Current Sacue is running the results of our "Best Teacher, Worst 
Teacher", survey in this week's paper. After careful consideration we 
decided not to reveal the name of the losing teacher. 

There were several reasons for this. First, it would hav have been entirely 
unethical, if not down right rude. Second, there is no real use in publicly 
embarrassing that teacher teacher. 

We figured that if we just publish the general comments and leave out the 
names, alot of the teachers would see themselves in the critique. That in 
itself should do justice to both the teacher, and the students who selected 
him or her. 

The winner of course, has been announced. Dr. John Hix of the Business 
Administration Department was an overwhelming choice for the best 

Radical Rag 

Kidnapping Is A Crime 

(Editor's note; This week's Rag 
originally scheduled to be on 
Terrorism at Northwestern, was 
cancelled when word of the Demon 
Mascot kidnapping was released. ) 

The phone woke me up at 
precisely 4:48. It was Clifton 
f}olgiano. Clifton was hysterical. 
'Radical Rag the Mascot's been 
kidnapped and I knew it was going 
to happen," he exclaimed. 

I was still asleep, but I knew what 
he was saying. Bolgiano spoke 
again, but now he was sobbing. 

" I received a phone call early this' 
morning as I was cleaning out the 
office of KNWD, and trying to 
catch a quick smoke. A woman, she 
sounded deranged or at least high 
called the station and demanded 
that I put her on the radio, or she 
would kidnap the Mascot." 
Bolgiano took a deep breathe and 
continued. " Naturally I figured 
that she was drunk or something so 
I j ust hung up. Now he is gone and 
it's all my fault." 

I quickly reassured Bolgiano that 
yes indeed, it was all his fault, and if 
I were the Mascot I would never 

forgive him. 

After a moments silence, 
Bolgiano whispered into the phone . 
" Rag," he said, " That's not the 
worst part." I was dumbfounded. 
Here it was that Clifton had almost 
single-handedly handed over the 
Mascot to these terrorists, and he 
was saying that was not the worst 
part. What could be worse, unless 
of course .... they gave him back? 

Clifton continued," I received 
another call about five minutes ago 
from that same old woman who 
called last nht:" What did she say, I 

" She said that 1 was to act as the 
lai-, lasi-, " Clifton could not 
pronounce laisson, so I helped him. 

" Yea, that's it, " he cried, " 
laisson, She wanted me to be the go- 
between, between her and the FBI. 
Then I told her that the FBI wasn't 
even involved in the case, and she 
just laughed. In the background I 
could hear high piercing screams, 
and then loud barking. I can only 
assume that they were torchering ole 
Mascot by making him watch reruns 
of "Lassie." 

" Clifton," I said," you just stay 
where you are. I will send somebody 
over there to stay with you in a 
minute ." 

Clifton demanded Sherri Talley, 
but I said no that would be too 
dangerous. Clifton then asked who 
it would be and how could he tell 
that I sent him. I told Clifton the 
man's name would be Freud, and he 
would be waring a white jacket 
with the words, "Central State 
Hospital" on the sleeve. Clifton 
would finally be safe. It is hard to 
get hurt in a rubber room. 

As soon as I hung up the phone 
with Clifton, I called NSU President 
Dr. Rene Bienvenu. 

The well-known NSU president 
was already up. David Hartman of 
"Good Morning America" had 
already called with the news. 
Hartman was on his way to Nor- 
thwestern with his film crew, ready 
to shoot a story on the kidnapping. 

Bienvenu immediatly told me to 
call the Chief of the University 
Police, James K. Lee. I called his 
house. Mrs. Chief Lee answered the 

"I'm sorry." she began, "but my 

husband just left the house. There 
has been a kidnapping." I told her 
that was what I was calling about an 
hung up the phone. 

Five minutes later I called Chief 
Lee at the University Police 
headquarters. Chief Lee answered 
the phone. 

"Chief," I said, " This is Radical 
Rag, can you tell me anything about 
the kidnapping?" 

Lee answered quickly, " No Rag, 
I can't. The only clue that we have 
is an old brown work glove and 
some broken glass. But you can bet 
your sweet newspapers that we are 
gonna Find that sonofagun because 
he owes us $125 in parking fines." 

Finally I was satisfied. In spite of 
Bolgiano's mistakes, it was ap- 
parent that the Mascot would 
someday be found. 

But the big questions still remain. 
Would Clifton Bolgiano ever 
forgive himself for allowing the 
Mascot to be kidnapped? What if 
the Mascot is never returned ? Who 
would pay his parking fines? And 
the most important question. Is the 
Demon Mascot worth wasting an 
entire Radical Rag discussing him? 

David Stamey's Amazin' Pointz 

Of couse, with over 150 entries there were alot teachers who did rate a 
mention, and in all fairness to the teaching profession, there were many 
more teachers receiving votes for best teacher, that there were for teachers 
receiving votes as the worst teacher. 

But then again, that only goes to show that the worst teachers really 
mopped up on the votes. 

The entire purpose of the survey was to name a best teacher and run his or 
her picture in the Homecoming issue of the Current Sauce. Now with that 
accomplished, it is time to move on to bigger and better things. 

So, in all fairness fo the teaching profession, this week the Sauce will let 
the teachers have thier vengence, and we will have a best student/ worst 
student contest. 

We hope we can get as many nominations for the worst student as we did 
for the best/ worst teacher. Drop all nominations by the Sauce office. 

Northwestern reaching its all-time 
high in enrollment is fantastic, but 
there are still many problems in our 
enrollment profile. They are cer- 
tainly correctable. 

Included in our 6,500-pIus 
student enrollment are the part-time 
students, who amount to about half 
of the total enrollment. 

In order for Northwestern to 
thrive as a university, we must 
increase our full-time, un- 
dergraduate enrollment, the 
lifeblood of any university. 

The full-time students make up 
the true personality of a university, 
the members of the organizations, 
the people who run the campus 

We have made strides forward in 

this area as evidenced by increases in 
sophomore, junior and senior 
enrollment, but as long as we have 
half-empty dormitories on the 
Natchitoches campus while many of 
the other universities in the state 
are filling their's up, we cannot 
develop to our full potential. 

One of the academic areas with 
the greatest potential for this un- 
dergraduate growth is the College of 
Business. All trends show that the 
majors in the College of Business 
are to be among the highest in 
future academic growth. 

We can see this trend right here at 
home. It is because of the job 
market. Companies are looking for 
business majors. 

Well over 50 percent of the 

Placement Service ads in the first 
issue of the Current Sauce this fall 
were business-related. 

Northwestern's enrollment 
figures will show the College of 
Business is already one of the 
strongest colleges we have. To 
become even stronger and a bigger 
drawing power, there are several 
changes that need to be made. 

Number 1, we must increase the 
number of faculty members in the 
College of Business. There is a 
strong nucleus to build upon, but we 
must recruit even more top-level 
instructors. With more teachers, 
more classes could be offered each 

Another must change is getting a 
new Business Building. A new 
building would not only be a draw 

for prospective students but for 
prospective faculty members. 
Although capital outlays for new 
buildings could be slim or none for 
the immediate future, a new 
Business Building along with a 
renovated Chemistry-Physics 
Building should be at the top of the 

With these changes, the graduate 
program in the college would 
further develop. 

Northwestern has always been 
known for its College of Education 
and its nursing program. If we could 
develop our College of Business to 
the point that it is a state-wide or 
regional attraction, I believe our 
enrollment would continue to in-

Thoughts while cruising through 
West Texas... 

...It couldn't have been anything 
else than Willie Nelson's "I Gotta 
Get Drunk" that was playing on the 
badio as we pulled into beautiful 
downtown Abilene, Texas early 
Saturday afternoon. One look at 
the God-forsaken countryside 
would send most any sober human 
scurrying for a drink. 

It was easy to let my imagination 
wonder and compose a mental 
picture of thoushands of 
longhorned cattle being driven 
through the wide-open, windswept 
prairie towards the end of the trail 
in the 19th Century Abilene. But by 
the end of the afternoon I was 
wondering if this was the place 
where all that beef went to market. 

We checked in the Palatial 

Travelodge Motel and immediately I 
decided I had to have something to 
eat that didn't resemble your basic 
Burger Doodle House sepciality. 
Shoot, 1 figured, in Abilene we 
surely ought to find at worst a pretty 
good Mexican restaurant. With any 
kind of sense we'd run slap into a 
real live Texas steakhouse where 
they serve some serious beef, I 


Abilene is about the size of 
Lafayette. But they must have some 
old zoning ordinances that require 
all decent eating establishments to 
be on the El Paso side of town, 
because we drove around everything 
in the downtown area and the east 
side and couldn't find anything 
interesting, or even passable (unless 
you count the Chit Chat Lounge.) 

After an hour of searching, I 
decided it wouldn't hurt to pass up 
lunch and we headed back to our 
hideout. Eventually we went out to 
the stadium and watched the 
football game, which I don't care to 
discuss. The press box dinner of 
warm pressed ham sandwiches and 
Diet-Pepsi did nothing for me and 
when the stadium lights went out 
and the party was over, we were all 
ready for some authentic cattledrive 
grub that would make us forget 
anything not worth remembering. 

And at this point, there was a lot 
to forget. 

We were told all we had to do was 
get on the bypass and go around to 
the west side of town to run ito 
Abilene's finest late-night eating 
establishments. What we weren't 
told was the bypass had about six 
confusing intersections and not the 
[ first sign to guide us. 

The Saddle Sirloin was everything 
you basic TEXAS steakhouse is 
supposed to be. It had ugly 
waitresses, a jukebox, playing Willie 
and Waylon songs, a painting of a 
chuck wagon on the dining room 
wall, about three loud drunks, a 
semi-perfect brunette sitting in the 
corner with a half-waxed boyfriend 
and a sad look in her eye, and the 
meanest tastin K.C. steaks in the 
history of civilization. 

It was, as they occasionally say in 
Fort Worth, "Stronger Than 
Rent." It was also, as they say once 
in a while in Dry Gulch, Texas, 
"Better Than Great." 

Only problem was, when w e 
finally got out of the Saddle Sirloin 
at about 1:30 or so Sunday mor- 
ning, we couldn't find our way back 
to our plush rooms at the motel. 

It figured.

Important Mission Lies Ahead for NSU Coaches 

by Doug Ireland 

ABILENE, Texas— Open with a 
shot of a tape recorder and bring up 
the background music as the 
machine clicks on. 

"Your mission should you 
decide to accept it, must be com- 
plete by Saturday night. You will 
review game films of last years' 
McNeese and Portland State wins to 
learn what it takes to play great, if 
not just adequate, defense. Then 
watch films from the Abilene 
Christian Game to get an idea of the 
immense challenge facing you. 
Your assignment is to construct 
some semblance of a defense for 

"If you should fail in your 
mission, Northwestern will again 
suffer an embarassing defeat at the 
hands of another NAIA opponent, 
and Demon fans may disavow any 
knowledge of the team. Good luck. 
You'll need it. This tape will self- 
destruct in five seconds." Bring up 
the theme music and fade to black. 

That's the assignment facing the 
Demon coaching staff this week 
after Saturday night's stunning 41- 
38 loss to lightly-regarded Abilene 
Christian. Whether it turns out to be 
"Mission: Impossible," will be 
revealed in NSU's Homecoming 
game this Saturday night in Turpin 

The Demon defense, which was 
supposed to be the anchor of a drive 
towards a possible bid to the NCAA 
Division I-AA playoffs, self- 
destructed in the windblown plains 
of West Texas in the teeth of a 
previously impotent Abilene 
Christian offense. 

The Wildcats, driven by freshman 
quarterback Loyal Proffitt, rolled 
over the NSU defenders like a bunch 
of tumbleweed bouncing across the 
prairie. The same ACU attack 
which laid a young 41 points on the 
board against the Demons had 
managed to push in just a total of 33 
points in previous wins this year 
against the likes of (Gasp!) Nor- 
thern Colorado and Northwest 

There were excuses, none suf- 
ficient, for the pitiful performance 
by the Demon defense. The first 
unit of the three-man interior line 
watched most of the game from the 
sideline because of injuries, along 
with two starters from the secon- 

dary. The players pressed into 
service because of the injuries were 
most inexperienced and at time, 
obviously lost between the sidelines. 
And for the second straight week, 
the Demons were angelic in their 
emotional state-of-mind. 

The Wildcats were up for the 
game and ready to Proffitt from 
NSU mistakes. It goes without 
saying they didn't waste too many 
chances as they rolled up 27 first 
downs, 333 yards passing and 519 
yards in total offense. Had not the 
NSU scoring machine been 
operating at full throttle, the game 
would never have been in doubt, but 
the Demon attack was errorless. 

That kept the result a mystery 
until the final horn when Proffitt 
laced a 17-yarder to David Russell 
for a touchdown to give ACU the 

The toss capped a furious 80- 
yard, 15-play drive and voided a 
magnificent march by the Demons 
to a tie-breaking Dale Quickel field 
goal just 2:14 before the end. 

The gamer came on fourth down 
after three incompletions in the end 
zone, and it came as a second-guess 
by ACU coach Ted Sutton. The 
Cats used a time out after Demon 
Larry Robinson made a spectacular 
saving play and knocked the ball 
away from Willie Graham with two 
seconds remaining. ACUkicker 
Martin Perry set up shop for a 35- 
yard field goal effort that could 
have tied it at 38-all but Sitton 
reconsidered and sent Proffitt and 
company back out to go for the 

Russell wasn't the primary 
receiver on the play, or even the 
second choice. The Demons had 
those guys blanketed, but they 
should have since ACU ran the same 
play on first and second downs in 
the final four snaps. The primary 
target, flanker Quinton Smith, had 
already hauled in two long scoring 
passes on the same play earlier in the 

Smith did a fly pattern down the 
right sideline and Graham ran a 
corner route on the left side on the 
fateful final snap. Tight end Russell 
broke his pattern and drifted acoss 
the middle of the end zone as 
Proffitt searched for a miracle 

Demon Ski Team 
Just A Jump A way 

The 1981 Northwestern Ski Team 
is a jump away from the regional 
tournament, which will be held in 
Monroe at Northeast University. 

The ski team has been working 
extremely hard with the aim of 
beating the stiff competition that 
will be found at the regional meet in 

This year the Ski Team will feature 
a young mostly freshman team, but 
the skiers will have several ex- 
perienced people back. 
The men's A team for jumping 

and slalomming will be Mark 
Thompson, Hayes Worley, Nicki 
Choate, David Pate, and Jeff Po- 

The men's A team for tricking 
will be, Thompson, Worley, Pate, 
Kurt Ryder and Vincent Nicholson. 

There will be only two women 
representing the girl's team, those 
two being Kathryn Brinson and 
N i kk i Saxxon who will constitute 
the A team. They will compete in all 
three events. 

Kathryn Brinson, member of the NSU waterskiing team, 
goes through a practice run on the north end of Cane River, 

The cool freshman chunker had 
no pass rush to hurry him and split 
two defenders with the bullet to 
Russell, setting off a wild 'Cat 

There were no omnious signs of 
trouble early for NSU, even though 
ACU moved 44 yards after the 
opening kickoff before Steve Graf 
intercepted Profitt's bomb for Brad 
McCoy and brought it back eight 
yards to the Demon 14. Four plays 
later, it looked like just another 
night at the office for the nearly 
nuclear-powered NSU offense. 

Bobby Hebert winged a shot to 
speed Demon Victor Oatis at the 
Abilene 40 and V.O. split two 
Wildcat deep backs, going in un- 
touched to compete a 64-yard score. 
Quickel kicked it out to 7-0 with 
9:33 left in the first quarter. 

ACU rushed right back, using a 
draw-oriented running game to get 
down to the Demon 34 before a fake 
punt failed. As the Northwestern 
offense trotted on the field most of 
the 6,500 Wildcat fans in Shotwell 
Stadium were holding their breath 
and bracing for another bomb-and 
they weren't disappointed, ex- 
pecially since it was Proffitt doing 
the firing. 

Hebert rolled out on first down 
and 'Cat tackle Dan Niederhofer 
blew by a blocker to snag Bobby for 
a 13-yard loss. In a game filled with 
big plays, this may have been the 
biggest, because it seemed to ignite 

the Texans. After the Oatis TD, 
thoughts of Northwestern's 
manglings of their two Lone Star 
Conference mates (Angelo State and 
Stephen F. Austin) must have been 
recalled. The sack signalled that 
ACU wasn't going to roll over and 
play dead. 

The confirmation came six plays 
later after NSU punted. On third- 
and-eight from the 'Cat 47, Proffitt 
looked long for Smith and found 
him behind Spencer Mallett at the 
10. The flanker made a superb 
fingertip grab and stumbled in for 
the sixer. 

Perry's PAT split the uprights 
and with 1:49 left in the initial 
period it was 7-7. 

Freshman Roy Fontenot put the 
Demons back in charge with 14-7 
with a nifty 65-yard punt return 9:44 
before halftime. He got behind a 
solid wall of Demons at the NSU 45 
and raced down the right sideline to 
the 10, juked away from one 
Wildcat and scrambled loose from 
another before he tumbled into the 
end zone. Quickel added the 

Abilene came right back, though, 
knotting it up just 21 seconds later. 
Steve Parker took Leo Clement's 
looping kickoff at the 10 and looked 
to be hemmed in by several Demons 
at the 12, but he shook loose and 
sprinted out to the ACU 49 before 
Terry Bertrand hauled him down. 

Bertrand couldn't catch Smith on 
the next play, however, Proffitt hit 

his receiver on the same pattern that 
produced the first TD and it worked 
for six more at the 9:23 mark. 
Perry's kick made it 14-14. 

The Northwestern running game, 
quiet since the graduation of Joe 
Delaney, awoke from a long 
winter's nap and the Demons used 
the newly discovered weapon to go 
back on top. 

Kenny Jones followed a great 
block by Steve Shillings and ripped 
off a 22-yard gain to the Abilene 42. 

Fullback Chuck Dupree, subbing 
for the injured Carlton Finister, 
bounced down to the 38 on the next 
play. Hebert and Tony Greene 
hooked up for five yards and 
Greene got two and a first down at 
the 31. 

Hebert rolled down to the 12 
behind Green's block and moved it 
to the 10 on the next snap. He 
found Dupree open at the five and 
Chuck bulled throuh the Wildcats 
and scored to boost NSU to a 20-14 

Quickel's string of 16 consecutive 
conversion kicks this season was 
snapped when Niederhofer blocked 
the kick after a high cnap with 5:05 
left before intermission. 

The Texans grabbed the lead with 
30 seconds left in the half when 
Priffitt eluded a blitz and connected 
with Parker on a nine-yarder. Two 
plays earlier, Mallett and Smith 
collided at the nine and NSU was hit 
with a 41 -yard penalty for in- 

terference that set up the tally.': 
Perry's successful PAT made it 21- 


Linebacker Gary Reasons picked 
off Proffitt's pass on the first play 
from scrimmage in the third quarter 
and Northwestern went to work 
from the ACU 31. 

Jones, who ended with 130 yards 
on 19 totes, carried it four stiaignt 
times and his three-yard run put the 
Demons in charge again. Jerry 
Wheeler took Hebert's pass for a 
two-point conversion to up it to 28- 
21 at the 13:26 mark. 

But the Wildcats roared and got 
two third-period TD's from Larry 
Henderson to make it 35-28 heading 
into the final 15 minutes. The 
scores came on runs of seven and 12 
yards and capped back-to-back 
drives of 61 and 80 yards against the 
clueless NSU defense. 

After Jones's TD, two third- 
period Demon possessions came up 
empty and NSU went to relief 
specialist Eric Barkley for some 
juice. The senior signalcaller 
sparked two long scoring marches in 
the fourth quarter to push Nor- 
thwestern ahead for the last time. 

Jones's second three-yard 
touchdown run wrapped up a 87- 
yard, 11-play drive and Quickel's 
kick stalemated it at 35-35 with 
10:51 left. The defense then held 
near midfield and forced a punt that 
nearly proved disasterous for NSU.

As Festivities Close 

NSU Meets ETSU for Homecoming 

Once again its that time of year, 
homecoming week, and what a way 
to close off the festivities, as our 
Demons play host to East Texas 
State Universty. 

ETSU will be the fourth con- 
secutive (and last) Lone Star 
conference team which NSU has 
faced this season. The Demons lead 
the series 10 games to seven with one 

Coach Ernest Hawkins has a fine 
nucleus returning to the ETSU 
backfield to highlight his squad. 
Tailback Cary Noiel, split end 
Randy Smith, and quarterback Kyle 
Mackey, lead the way. 

Noiel, a 5-11, 2-00 pound senior 
heads the Lions' rushing attack with 
215 yards, and Smith (6-2. 170 
pound senior) is tops receiving with 
nine catches for 225 yards. 

The performance of Noiel and 
Smith were expected, according to 
Hawkins, but the play of Mackey 
has been pleasant surprise. Last 
season Hawkins had All-American 
Wade Wilson quarterback his squad 
to the NAIA semifinals where they 
were defeated by Elon, NC 14-6. 

Wilson is now toiling away in the 
NFL with the Minnesota Vikings, 
and Mackey was brought on to call 
the signals this season. And through 
the first two games of the year he's 
already found some fans, one of 
them being his own coach. 

"Mackey has all the tools to 
become just as good a quarterback 
as Wilson," Hawkins stated. That 
is really saying something, con- 
sidering Wilson threw for over 2,000 
yards last year. 

Going into this past Saturday's 
clash with Central State of 

Oklahoma, the 6-3, 200-pound 
sophomore singal-caller has already 
made his mark, as he leads the LSC 
in passing with a 259 yards per game 
average. Two weeks ago, Mackey 
connected on 15 of 26 passes for 258 
yards and one touchdown in a heart- 
breaking 39-37 loss to Southern 
Arkansas (The Lions beat Cameron- 
Oklahoma 17-13 in their season 

ETSU is sparked on defense by 
cornerback Darren Smith. The 6-1, 
175 pound defensive back was a 
1980 second team All-LSC selec- 
tion. Other players to watch are 6- 
3, 220 pound end David Lowe, and 
6-4, 220 pound tackle Gary 

The Demons, on the other hand, 
hope to keep their eight-game home 
winning streak in tact. Another 
interesting note is that NSU has not 
lost a homecoming game since 1974, 
when it lost to Southwestern 
Louisiana 14-10. 

Not including the Abilene 
Christian contest, the Demons are 
now second in NCAA I-AA scoring 
offense with a 40.3 average, and 
third in passing offense with 261.3 
years per game. 

Bobby Hebert, who is now 
ranked fifth nationally in passing 
efficiency, has thrown for 419 yards 
and five touchdowns through three 
games; and his counterpart Eric 
Barkley, 365 yards and three scores. 

Chuck Dupree, who started 
against Abilene Christian, may see 
extended action against ETSU, 

depending on the availability of 
regular fullback Carlton Finister. 
Finister injured his ribs in the 
Stephen F. Austin game. 

Come on out, catch all of the 
homecoming pre-game and halftime 

Demon Playground 

The 1981 Fall intramural season got kicked off with the annual Lite Tug- 

The Brotherhood took the men's division for the third straight year with 
a victory over the University of Yang in the finals. East Rapides took third. 

In the women's division the VIP's took first and UnKappa Fifth finished 
second. Phi Mu rounded out the top three. 

Natchitoches Beverage and the Miller Brewing Co. provided T-shirts for 
the top two finishers in each division and trophies for the top three. 

Co-ed softball was next on the intramural calendar. GDI Omen took the 
first place trophy home with a 8-4 win over Kappa Alpha-Phi Mu in the 
finals of the double elimination tournament. 

In the horseshoes competition Angela Lasyone of Phi Mu and Steve 
Broussard of Kappa Alpha took the individual titles. Lasyone and Cecil 
Hawthorne teamed up to take the women's doubles, while Oliver Chairs 
and Michael Mays of Trach Phi Track picked up the men's championship. 

Vicky Miguez led the VIP's to the Punt, Pass, and Kick championship as 
she totaled over 257 feet. Phi Mu finished second with 927'4" to finish 80 
feet behind the VIP's. 

Rick Schweitzer totaled 471 '8" as he led Kappa Sigma to a team total of 
2045 feet, to outdistance Kappa Alpha who finished second with 1849 feet. 

In the first intramural goli tournament to be held at Rec. complex, Joe 
Bienvenu of the University of Yang shot an impressive two over par 37 to 
take the men's championship. 

Bienvenu's teammate Joe Cunningham led a pack of five golfers at 38, 
they included John Young of Theta Chi, David Thompson of Cheap Trick, 
Larry Williams and Vacari Ransibrahmankul playing independent. 
Another Yang star James Smith was one shot back at 39. 

Lynn Clary of Phi Mu took the women's title with a 56. 

Demons Fall to Abilene, 41-38 

up nine on third-and three. 

Jones, Dupree and Greene mixed 
some tough running with Barkley 
passes of 13 yards to Oatis and 16 
yards to Wheeler as the offensive 
line was working wonders. Barkley 
fumbled the snap on first down 
from the ACU 14 and two in- 
completions forced Quickels field 
goal attempt that edged inside the 
right crossbar, ending the 6:45-long 
drive and giving the Demons a 38-35 

Fontenot tried an over-the 
shoulder catch inside the 10 and had 
it slip away. He picked the ball up 
at the one and decided to down it 
rather than risk a safety on a return 

But Barkley and crew did the job 
and got the go-ahead points. The 17 
play, 84-yard drive nearly fizzled 
out back at the Demon eight but 
Dupree made a fine grab of a pass 
thrown slightly behind him to pick

Kidnapping Sets Mood For Somber Porker Panel 

Horrified over the knowledge that 
former Celebrity Sucker, er 
Selector, The Northwetsern Demon 
Mascot had been kidnapped earlier 
this morning, the weekly meeting of 
the Current Sauce Porker Pickers 
was one filled with elation. 

After having beaten everybody 
else last week, no one real ly cared if 
the Mascot was ever found. 

Joe Cunningham, the only 
panelist to break the .800 mark, was 
the most somber of the group. 
Cunningham, who had gone for 
the week, offered a prayer up for 
the Mascot. 

However, David Stamey, who 
was beside himself after going a 
dismal 7-3, threatened that if the 
Mascot was ever found and allowed 
to be a celebrity panelist again, he 
would quit. Cunningham then 
offered another prayer for the sate 
return of the Mascot. 

Bob Sjoberg (6-4) and Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner (5-5) were silent 
throughout the meeting. 
Baumgardner, who for some odd 
reason was the only regular panelist 
to select New Orleans over San 
Francisco, vowed not to talk until 
the Saints won a game. 

Stamey laughed and whispered to 
Sjoberg that Baumgardner wouldn't 
be talking for years. 

Last week's celebrity selectors 
had a combined record of 15-15. All 
three, Kaye Henley, Marilyn Boss, 
and David Say went 5-5. 

Kaye didn't come to the meeting 
to pick up her 25 cent com- 
plimentary issue of Popular 
Mechanix that is used as payment 
for the celebrities. She called in sick 
and asked that Marilyn bring it to 

Unfortunatly, Marilyn didn't 
make it either. Marilyn called in sick 

too, but in the background you 
could hear more Rick James music, 
the sound of moving feet and hips, 
and wild screaming. Stamey took 
the call and heard the noise and got 
scared. He called the University 
Police to report a mass mugging. 

The third panelist, Saylors, was 
so excited about hitting .500 on his 
games, that he waltzed into the 
office expecting a bonus. Stamey 
gave him a bonus. Saylors got two 
25 cent issues of Popular Mechanix 
for the price of three. Stamey is all

Northwestern Enrollment 
Tops 6700, 

Sets New Record 

Former Senator McGovern is the feature speaker at the Distin- 
guished Lecture Series on Sept. 24 in Prather Coliseum. Mc- 
Govern told students that he would rather be at Northwestern 
talking to them, than trade places with the winner of the 1972 
Presidential Election. 

Northwestern State Univeristy 
President Rene Bienvenu an- 
nounced that fall semester 
enrollment at NSU reached a record 
6,722, the highest is the 97 year 
history of the university. The fall 
registration total is an increase of 
803 students over the enrollment of 
the fall semester of 1980. 

According to Austin Temple, 
NSU Registrar, the largest increase 
was in the College of Graduate 
Studies and Research, with 2,025 
students, up 720 from last fall. 

Undergraduate enrollment is 
4,698 students, up 371 from fall of 

Four of the university's seven 
colleges reported increases over last 
fall. The Colleges of Graduate 
Studies and Research, Business, 
Nursing, Science and Technologies, 
all reported increases in their 

The breakdown by colleges shows 
808 in the college of Science and 
Technology, 1,182 in Business, 882 
in Nursing, 412 in Liberal Arts, 688 
in Education, 760 in Basic Studies 
and Academic Services. 

This year's enrollment figures 
report that 3,961 men are enrolled, 
and 2,761 women are enrolled. 

All undergraduate classes showed 
increases in enrollment. The 
University reports 969 seniors, 800 
junior, 840 sophmores, and 2,088 

Figures from the Dean of 
Students' office report that 137 
full time students are enrolled on the 
NSU campus. 

Students living on the campus are 
reported to be 1350, by Becky 
Brown, Director of Housing. In- 
cluding Shreveport students, 1450 
students are living in Northwers 

Another breakdown of figures 
shows 144 students holding meal 
tickets for Ibberville, and 298 
students with variable meal tickets. 

Bienvenu attributed the 
enrollment increase to the diligence 
of faculty and staff members in 
upgrading academic programs and 
other university services, and it also 
demonstrates the success of efforts 
by university personnel, students, 
alumni, and other firends of 
Northwestern to attract new stude- 
nts to NSU. 

Mayor Joe Sampite, when 
contacted about the increase, said, 
"I'd like to give the biggest credit to 
the NSU students who are the best 
recruiters, and the attitudes of the 
faculty campus, and to Dr. 
Bienvenu who has worked so hard, 
and to the Pitt Program". 

Sampite added that the Chamber 
of Commerce, the Industrial 
Committee and Tourist Depart- 
ment, as well as the town of Nat- 
chitoches have joined in to promote 
the university 100%.

Business Administration Depart- 
ment, has been selected by the 
Northwestern students as the best

A Message From The President 

Hi, and welcome to Nor- 
thwestern. I guess that's probably 
the standard greeting that you get 
from all of the colleges that send 
you meaningless brochures, because 
actually, unless you really went to 
the school, you wouldn't know 
exactly what the brochures meant. 

So that is why we at Northwestern 
and the Current Sauce are at- 
tempting to bring the school to you, 
so to speak. 

We are going to be sending your 
school a four-page paper like this 
seven more times this year. In this 
paper we will tell you why NSU is 
the place for you. We will let you in 
on what is going on in Natchitoches 
and at Northwestern and what there 
is for you to do in your spare time 
around campus. 

This first issue is just going to be a 
general "get to know Nor- 
thwestern" issue. We will attempt 
to show you some of the more 
interesting things at NSU and a few 
of the courses that are offered. 

In later issues, we hope to sell you 
some of the different areas of study 
at NSU. We are famous for our 
College of Business and our College 
of Nursing, but we are just as proud 
of our College of Science and 
Technology, College of Liberal 
Arts, our College of Education, and 
our University College. There 
should be no problem finding 
something that you will like once 
you get on this campus. 

Of course, there are other things 
besides academies. All work and no 
ply makes Joe a dull boy, so they 
say. Over here we have one of the 

finest intramural programs in the 
south. Think there is a week that 
goes by without some form of in- 
tramural competition going on. 

There are four classifications of 
the intramural leagues. There are 
the Fraternity and Soroity divison 
and the boys and girls Independent 

What that means, is that if you 
don't join a fraternity or a soroity 
and play intramurals for them, then 
you can join an Independent team, 
or make one up yourself, and play 
as a member of that team. 

Some of the highlights of the 
Intramural year are the Flag 
Football Super Bowl, played on the 
astroturf at Turpin Stadium on 
campus, and the Co-Ed softball 
tourney played each fall with five 
girls and five guys on a team 
competing for trophies. 

And if that's not enough for you, 
there is also swimming, basketball, 
golf and a whole lot more. So see, 
there is always something to do 
when you don't have any 

So there in a nutshell is a reason 
for you to come to NSU. Our 
academic programs and our in- 
tramurals programs, not to mention 
our general location whichis in one 
of the prettiest places in the state. 

We sincerely hope that you will 
consider coming to Northwestern 
when you high school days are over, 
but until that time comes, live it up, 
because you only do the high school 
scene once, and when you get here, 
you are going to have so much fun 
that you will forget all about your 
high school days. 

Student Services 

Student Services are offered for 
all students and are designed to 
assist our students in making their 
stay at NSU enjoyble. These ser- 
vices, though non-academic, 
enhance the "total education" 
concept. The services include on- 
campus housing accomodations for 
single and married students, student 
identification cards, a loan fund for 
making short-term and emergency 
loans, health services, food services, 
vending services, refrigerator rental 
plan for dormitory residents, and 
student accident insurance. 

Our services are designed with the 
students in mind, and students have 
a voice in all services that are of- 
fered and/or will be offered. 
Continuous efforts are made to 
improve existing services and add 
additional services that will benefit 
our student body and enhance their 
stay on campus. 

Any students who desires on- 
campus housing must apply through 
the Office of Student Services. The 
application represents a contract 
agreement for one semester. The 
initial step is to complete a room 
reservation card which indicates 

roommate preference and semester 
of attendance. These cards may be 
obtained by writing Director of 
Student Services, Northwestern 
State University, Natchitoches, 
Louisiana 71457, or obtained from 
Room 306, Student Union Buildine 
on the Northwestern Campus. 

The residence hall represents 
more than a physical shelter. 
Students interact with each other in 
a manner which facilitates their 
personal growth and understanding 
of themselves and others. Residence 
hall students typically display a 
broader understanding of different 
viewpoints and learn to tolerate and 
accept wider varieties of per- 
ceptions. The residence hall staff is 
committed to facilitating the 
maturation process and working 
with the students to develop their 
own individuality. 

AH dormitory residents, excepts 
senios and graduate students, are 
required to purchase 5-day or 7-day 
meal tickets. Breakfast, lunch, and 
dinner are all served in Iberville 
Dining Hall located between the 
largest female and male dor- 
mitories. Meal tickets may be 

Northwestern State University, 
which is nearing its 100th an- 
niversary, clings to its rich heritage 
and cherished traditions, but we at 
the University are equally proud of 
our innovative programs, modern 
facilities and progressive approach 
to education. 

With a diverse, highly-competent 
faculty and a physical plant that is 
virtually unparallelled in this region 
in providing opportunities for 
effective instruction, meaningful 
research and recreational and extra- 
curricular activities for students, 
Northwestern anticipates a future 
that is as bright and successful as its 

For 97 years, Northwestern has 
helped prepare young people for 
places of productivity and 
leadership in society, and while we 
at the University never lose sight of 
that paramount goal of higher 
education, we also recognize the 
need to make learning and 
university life enjoyable, 
memorable experiences. 

Through the decades, Nor- 
thwestern has enjoyed the 
reputation of being a friendly, warm 
institution, and that reputation has 
been built for the most part by 
teachers and administrators who 
have a genuine concern for students 
and who are interested in young 
people as individuals and not simply 
as nameless, faceless students. 

Northwestern's location in 
Natchitoches, the oldest permanent 
settlement in the Louisiana Pur- 
chase, is another major asset to the 
institution. Natchitoches is a 
charming community of gracious 
people who have long been aware of 
the University's cultural, 
educational, economic and social 
importance to the region. 

The University Campus itself is 
unique, not only because it is a 
blend of stately, historic structures 
and ultra-modern facilities, but also 
because of the sprawling, 1,000 
acre, pine tree-studded gounds that 
are bordered by magnificent 
Chaplain's Lake. 

Northwestern's enviable 
academic stature has endured 
through the years, and its students 
are provided opportunities to obtain 
associate, bachelor, master's and 
doctorate degrees in scores of 
specialized fields under the broad 
academic areas of Business, 
Education, Liberal Arts, Nursing, 
Science and Technology, General 
Studies and Graduate Studies and 

But learning and preparing for 
the future at Northwestern have 
never been restricted to the 
boundaries of classrooms and 
laboratories. The University has 
more than 90 chartered student 
organizations that provide op- 
portunities for development of 
leadership skills and participation in 
educational, social, professional, 
cultural and religious activities. 

Education at Northwestern is 
enhanced by a multiplicity of 
auxiliary services and facilities such 
as the prestigious Watson Memorial 
Library, American Language and 
Orientation Center, Department of 
Counseling and Testing, Computer 
Center, Television Center, 
Williamson Museum, Center for the 
History of Louisiana Education, 
guest lecturers, dramatic produc- 
tions, concerts and dozens of other 
activities, facilities and programs. 

College life is also fun at Nor- 
thwestern, and that is as it should 
be. The University has a unique 
outdoor recreation complex 
featuring a golf course, swimming 
pool and other facilities, an ex- 
tensive intramural program, a 
natatorium, a multi-million dollar 
athletic complex, varied activities in 
a huge Student Union Building and 
nearby opportunities for camping, 
hiking, cycling, hunting, fishing and 
water skiing. 

Northwestern faculty members 
and administrators are dedicated to 
the goal of providing students a 
solid educational foundation upon 
which to build their futures, but we 
are also committed to contributing 
to the development of well-rounded 
students by creating an atmosphere 
on campus that is academically- 
challenging yet personally fulfilling, 
enjoyable and rewarding. 

Attending Northwestern has been 
an enriching experience for nearly 
70,000 students since the school was 
established in 1884, and we at the 
university are striving to make 
Northwestern more responsive than 
every before to the changing, 
complex educational and personal 
needs of the students of today and 

We sincerely feel that the slogan 
of a recent promotional campaign 
conducted by Northwestern alumni 
and friends-"The Place for You is 
NSU"-is appropriate. The place 
for young people who are seeking a 
comprehensive education and an 
exhilarating, enjoyable college 
career is indeed. Northwestern State

The University operates a small 
infirmary service on campus. A 

registered nurse is on duty all hours 
that the infirmary is opened. The 
NSU infirmary will provide routine 

non-prescription drugs such as 
aspirin, band-aids, etc. If a student 
is seriously ill, he or she should 
consult the university physician in

they included John Young of Theta Chi, David Thompson of Cheap Trick, 
Larry Williams and Vacari Ransibrahmankul playing independent. 
Another Yang star James Smith was one shot back at 39.

More Intramurals 

The intramural program at

Through participation in in- 
tramurals one receives both physical 
and social development. One is able 
to forget the pressures of school and 
of life for a while and to become 
involved in fun-filled intramural

competing in intramurals as an 
individual or as a team. Friendships

The success of the intramural 
program strongly depends upon the

students. The intramural staff is 
striving to involve all of the students 
and to offer a variety of fun-filled 
activities for everyone.

Supreme Court Rules ADOS and WCC Cannot 
Vote In Natchitoches Senatorial Elections 

By Sonja Henry 
Sauce News Editor 


The highest student authority, the 
Student Supreme Court, ruled for 
1 [he second time that ADOS and 
VVCC campuses will not vote in 
Natchitoches senatoclass and at 
large senatorial elections. The court 
added that only one inaguaral ceri- 
mony will be held for each election. 

Chief Justice David Martin 
announced the opinion of the court 
to subtract the votes from ADOS 
and WCC — shreveport campuses 
from all of this semester's senatorial 

"The court has ruled on three

court has had to rule on the exact 
same issues. It is ridiculous that the 
whole thing happened in the first 
place", said Martin. 

The court cision said in part, "the 
court realizes that some candidates 
declared winners or placed in the 
runoffs may no longer be eligible to 
hold the position... and new runoffs 
may develop... The Supreme Court 
^annot allow someone to represent 
the students... if they were not 
tlected by a majority of those 

The court was origianally 
petitioned by David LaVere and 

Cliff Lopez to rule on elections held 
by the SGA, when it was discovered 
at the Sept. 28 meeting of the 
Student Government Association, 
that the elections were in con- 
tradiction to a Mar. 26 Student 
Supreme Court Decision. 

David Stamey, who represented 
the SGA, asked the court to 
throw out the votes from the 
Shreveport campuses. Stamey felt 
that the votes from the Natchitoches 
campus were "legal and in good 
faith", and the court ruled in his 

An SGA amendment challenging 
part of the Mar. 26 decision 
complicated the case. The amend- 
ment would allow the Shreveport 
campuses to vote for SGA execuive 

It was the opinion of the court on 
that matter that the students had not 
voted on the referendum, so the 
original court opinion stands as law, 
and that the proposed referendum 
did not deal with elections of 
senators, so regardless of the results 
of the referendum WCC and ADOS 
will not vote for senators. 

The question of why the elections 
were held in contradiction to the 
court's previous ruling was not at 

issue, although Senator LaVere told 
the SAUCE, "Incompetency is 
throughout the whole SGA, I place 
the blame on the majority of the 
senators... Nobody takes the time to 
read the bills, or the constitution, 
and please don't think I'm leaving 
myself out". 

Bob Cleveland, recently sworn in 
as SGA freshman senator asked the 
court, during the presentation, "If 
the Shreveport votes are sub- 
tracted... would you ask senators 
who have all ready been elected and 
sworn in to step down?". 

Martin said that he felt the key 
word was "elected". 

LaVere said, "We approve 
senators without actually know ng 
whether they were elected... and 
people get hurt..." 

The second part of the Student 
Supreme Court ruling stated the 
only qne inagural ceremony be held 
for each election. 

The court was not petitioned to 
rule on the swearing-in process. The 
decision to review the practice was 
made when it was revealed during 

The effects of the court decision 
did change the outcome of the 
elections, (see related story)

SGA Faced With Election Controversy 

In a comedy of errors, it was 
revealed at the Student Government 
Association meeting of Sept. 28 that 
the Sept. 16 election was held in 
direct violation of the Student 
Supreme Court ruling which deniss 
the Shreveport campuses the rht to 
vote in senatorial elections of the 
Natchitoches campus. 

Wendy Skrenshaw, the ADOS 
represenative, started the confusion 
by announcing that ADOS was not 
allowed to vote in the Sept. 16 run- 
off elections. 

After considerable controversial 
discussion on that subject, Cliff 
Lopez reminded the Senate of the 
Court ruling which stated that they 
should not have voted in any 
election for Senators. 

The Student Supreme Coutt 
issued the opion March, and stated 
that WCC and ADOS campuses 
would vote for SGA Pre sident and 
State Fair and Homecoming courts 

The Student Supreme Court 
terprets the constutn and issues 
opinions on cases, based on the 
constitution. The resulting opinions 
are considered legal and binding. 
The matter was further com- 

plicated when Vice-President Kevin 
Bartholemew announced, "The 
SGA over-ruled the (Supreme 
Court) decision. 

Bartholemew was referring to a 
proposed amendment, which has 
not yet been voted on by the 
students, which would allow ADOS 
and WCC to vote for SGA executive 

"We did not over-rule the 
Student Supreme Court, we don't 
have the power to do that", replied 
Cliff Lopez, former SGA President. 

President Joe Stamey said that he 
felt that the Supreme Court did take 
presidence in the matter, but 
Bartholemew stood firm and told 
the senate, "I would just recom- 
mend that you not vote just because 
of David's (Chief Justice Martin) o- 

The problem of what to do about 
the Sept. 16 election faced the 
senate, and Commsioner of 
Elections Diana Kemp felt that since 
no one had contested the election to 
her within the 48 hour period 
specified by the constitution, the 
results should be approved. 

The motion to approve the 
election results was tabled, until 
further consideration could be given 


In other election matters, Ms. 
Kemp reported a low voter turn-out 
for the Sept. 23 elections. She 
announced that Sate Fair and SGA 
run-off elections will be held Oct. 5, 
and Mr. and Miss NSU nominations 
open Oct. 8. 

In other action taken, Dean 
Napoli was sworn in as Senior Class 
Senator, and Bob Cleveland was 
approved to sit on the Election 

Sherry Talley announced that the 
Blood Drive had broken reached an 
all-time high at NSU, with a eecord 
308 donors. Ms. Talley said that 
Northwestern stood a chance to beat 
Tech in the drive, aad presented the 
SGA with a plaque from the Louisi- 
ana Blood Center in recognition. 

The Distinguished Lecture series 
beccame the topice of conversation, 
when the SGA was asked for input 
on whether the $13,200 DLS budget 
should be spent for a big-name 
speaker, or if several lower costing 
saeakers suld be spread oot duri ing 
the spring semester. 

Amoung the names mentioned as 
possible high-cost speakers were 
Walter Cronkite and Paul Harvey. 

In other business, Wedy Skresw 
was dsatisfied with ADOS — 
natchitoches communication, and 
Cliff Lopez was dissatisfied with the 
Current Sauce. 

The ADOS represenative told the 
SGA that better contact with the 
Natchitoches campus was needed. 
"When we get the information, it's 
too late to do anything about it. The 
stude are getting frustrated about 

Cliff Lopez inquired about an 
editorial which appeared in the 
SAUCE stating that the SGA and 
SUGB were sponsoring a Pub on 

President Joe Stamey replied that 
the SGA was not sponsoring the 
Pub that the SUGB has proposed 
for the Student Union, but that the 
SGA was inquiring as to the 
possibility of havsponsoring their 
own Pub. "But this is still in the 
very early, early stages... we would 
not sponsor something of this kind 
without getting the SGA approyal 
first", said Stamey.

Caddo Dorm Opened To Saudis 

Caddo dormitory, closed for 
three years, opened its doors in 
August for Saudi Arabian students 
training for work in the methanol 

The forty-eight men (age range 
17-25) came to NSU via the 
National Methanol Company, 
(NMC) which is an organization 
composed of several American and 
Saudi Arabian oil companies. 

The students were first recruited 
in their country by a government 
sponsored agency, whose main 
purpose is to industrialize Saudi 
Arabia, not only in oil but also in 

Methanol is obtained by the 
destructive distillation of wood or 
waste products, and then is used as a 
fuel, automobile antifreeze or in the 
synthesis of formaldehyde. 

According to Jerry Durgan, Site 
Administration at Caddo, high 
school graduates and college un- 
dergraduates make up the bulk of 
the students' educational 

He added that some of the 
students have previously lived in the 
U.S., Taiwan, Germany, Japan and 

The students train for industrial 
skills only after they learn basic 
English, Math, and Science with 
Telemedia Inc. which is a basic skills 
training program contracted by 
NMC and based in Chicago. 

Durgan said that Telemedia plans 

to stay on at NSU until their phase 
of the program ends in July. 

"From here they will go to 
various methanol plants in Texas 
for further job skills," said Durgan. 

"In the meantime the primary 
purpose for our students is to 


master English and to get a 
basic feeling for Science 
Math," he added. 

He said that the students also 
have a "Life Copings" class, which 
is an introduction to American 

Learning how to buy American 
pants, and the accurate reading of 
bus schedules are some of the skills 
learned in class. 

"It will take time for them to 
adapt to our lifestyle" said Durgan, 
"because they are shy."

KNWD To Hold RadioThon Oct. 8 

"They will be up there day and 
night until we reach our goal. What 
they are saying by sitting on the 
colums is that we believe in NSU, we 
believe in the station and we're on 
top of the situation", claimed Fillet. 

The festivities will include a live 
broadcast from the bottom of the 
pillars, a car wash or two, and 
business helping and donation 

By the way, remember all the nice 
things KNWD does for the 
organizations on campus. The 
willing and wonderful publicity that 
helps out so many functions. It's 
time for some organizations to show 
their support, and help out in 
whatever way they can, be it time or 

hillet has hopes that the town- 
people will pitch in to donate 
money and prizes for any give- 
aways that KNWD might be able to 
sponsor for the radiothon. 

The station will be on the air 
round the clock during the fund- 
raiser, and a ground crew will 
broadcast from the foot of the 
colums, so that everybody will know 
how much over the $8 thousand 
mark they will go. 

Anyone wishing to donate their 
tax-deductable dollars to KNWD 
should make their check out to: 
NSU Foundation, KNWD Account. 

KNWD, the non-commercial 
campus radio station will hold a 

radiothon on Thursday, Oct. 8, 
starting at 12 noon, and three lucky 
KNWD'ers will sit on the celebrated 
NSU columns at Caldwell Hall for 
54 hours. 

The Radiothon is the brainch 
of Kirt Boudreaux and will be to 
raise $8 thousand to buy new 
equipment to help expand their 
power from 10 watts to 250 watts. 

The expansion is needed because 
the town has grown, and 10 watts 
doesn't carry all the way across 
town, or any reasonable distance 
out of town, and KNWD wants you 
to be able to hear all the good jam 
they" re playing 

KNWD General Manager, 
Richard Fillet, wants everyone to 
know that KNWD isn't afraid of a 
little hard work, so instead of asking 
the students for a fee increase, the 
station will pull together to raise the 
money themselves. (Of course, 
donations from everyone will be 
accepted, and every little bit helps!) 

According to Fillet, Kirt 
Boudreaux and Ginny Whitaker, 
and some unnamed brave soul will 
risk life and limb upon the column 
with only a chair tied to the column 
for their safety. The chair will have 
a safety belt on it, just in case 
anyone "fall asleep on their post".

... The Word is Elections 

...A few meaningless thoughts while wondering if Northwestern will ever 
again have an election in which there won't be a single foul-up... 

NSU voters will go to the polls this Wednesday to elect both a new set of 
class senators and to vote on an SGA sponsored amendment. 

In a nutshell, the amendment calls for allowing the SGA— WCC and 
SGA— ADos students to continue to vote for SGA executive officers and to 
assure equal representation in all matters. 

What that amendment fails to point out is that with the exception of the 
SGA president, the other SGA executive officers don't do a darn thing for 
the satellite campuses at Warrington and ADOS. 

The Warrington and ADOS campuses have their own set of executive 
officers who dictate to them, and the Natchitoches campus has its own 
executive council. 

By allowing the students at SGA— ADOS and SGA— WCC to vote for 
your (Natchitoches campus) executive officers, people who don't serve the 
ADOS andWarrington campus, your votes may get washed away and the 
people that you want to represent you may not get elected. 

So at the risk of letting someone with absolutely nothing at stake to vote 
for your executive council, it would seem that the only logical choice when 
you go to the polls to vote, would be to vote NO. 

Note NO to the SGA amendment that calls for allowing ADOS and 
Warrington campus students to vote on your executive offic ficers. 

Now for the regular class senatorial elections. Not that the NSU students 
elected anybody who couldn't have done a good job last time we had an 
election, but in year's past, the students at Northwestern have elected some 
Senators who were either too busy for the SGA regular meetings ( you see 
their names week after week in the absent collumn of the SGA minutes) or 
were just too lazy to represent the NSU students. 

When you go to the polls tomorrow do all of us a favor. Don't vote for 
the prettiest, or cutest, or even finest person running, instead, vote for the 
person that you think will do the BEST job of helping the existing SGA run 
more efficiently. 

Don't look at the pictures on the bulletin board, the SGA is NOT just 
another pretty face. The NSU SGA is a hard worki- ng group of people 
who are trying to make this a better place for the Norhtwestern student. 

And if you really wanted to go for a change of pace, then you could vote 
for the UGLIEST person that you see and make him or her your class

Radical Rag 

Same old song, different verse, 
another Northwestern election 
screw-up, pardon, mistake. 

For the second time in as many 
semesters, the students of NSU have 
been treated to an election scandal 
of sorts. 

The first time it only involved two 
people. One Person was given votes 
that weren't his and the other 
Person was given the other person's 
vote. Charges of vote tampering, 
incompetence, and even racism 

And pity the poor members of the 
Supreme Court. They spent over 10, 
hours one afternoon and until 2:00 
that morning virtually rewriting the 
NSU Constituion so that further 
incidents like this could be averted. 

Unfortunately it only took one 
more election before it happened 
again. Only this time instead of 
affecting "only" two students, it 
affected the ENTIRE election. 

Obviously some body either 
doesn't know their job, or just 
knows it and tends to ignore it. 

When the students at 
Northwestern choose to run for 
elected office, they should realize 
that they should be prepared to 
know that job inside and out. 

Northwestern definitly doesn't 
need someone who is going to run 
for a position just because it is a 
social position or because it will 
look good on their transcripts. 
Northwestern needs someone who

Passing thoughts while recovering 
from Homecoming Week... 

It's not unusual for Tech, 
Northeast or even Stephen F. Austin 
to have two or three big-name 
entertainers appear on their cam- 
puses each semester. For NSU, that 
is only a dream, but with a few 
changes it could become a reality. 

While the higher enrollments of 
Tech and NLU allow their Union 
Boards to finance several big-name 
groups per semester, they also have 
one other advantage in bringing in 
more big-time groups. 

Most of the other area colleges 
collect 3-5 dollars admission along 
with Student ID's and charge the 
regular 7-9 dollars admission to 

This allows those schools to make 
some money on the concerts and 
bring in more top names. 

Our Union Board would like to 
bring in more quality acts, but it is 
limited by our smaller enrollment 
and smaller gate. The SUGB cannot 
make a move without student input 
on the concert possibilities, so let 
them know how you feel... 

The Student Supreme Court met 
last week to determine the handling

We are lucky enough to have a 
court that is conscientious enough 
to deliberate long over all problems

In this particular case, ignorance 
could very definitly be pleaded as 
the cause for the mess. Somebody 
could very easily have said that 
nobody had bothered to read them

has to lead that person around by

then that person is better off trying

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Thoughts while wondering how 
Ed Jackson feels this week... 

...It looks like the city of Nat- 
chitoches is serious about cleaning 
up the mess in Chaplin's Lake. At 
the last City Council meeting, the 
city engineer reported on alter- 
natives available to get rid of the 
muck which sits in the northern 
corner of the lake. 

The catch is that it will cost an 
estimated $800,000 to clear the lake 
and rework the city's water treat- 
ment plant, the source of the 
problem, so it won't continue to 
dump the stuff. Of course, Nat- 
chitoches doesn't have a spare 
million or so sitting around in a 
bank account. The problem is where 
to find the money to foot the bill. 

City officials are optimistic that 
state funds may be obtained to pay 
for the work. Discussions with state 

administrators have been en- 
couraging, they said. 

The news is the first real step of 
progress since the problem came to 
light over two years ago in a Current 
Sauce story. And it proves that we 
as students can indeed have an 
impact on our university if we'll 
only get involved. 

NSU president Dr. Rene Bien- 
venu has worked with Student 
Government Association executives 
and senators to try and convincecity 
and state officials that something 
has to be done to remedy the 
situation. With the election of Joe 
Sampite as mayor of Natchitoches, 
NSU got a sympathetic ear in the 
right place. 

Mayor Sampite came into office 
facing a multitude of problems, not 
the least of which was a non-solvent 
city administration. Even so, he

I ...It 5 s My Turn 

ByBobSjoberg | 

McNeese Invades Turpin 

Whenever the Northwestern State 
Demons and the McNeese State 
Cowboys get together, it has always 
been a real headknocker. And on 
Saturday, it should be no exception. 

Both squads look toward 
bouncing back from losses this past 
week. McNeese dropped a 31-24 
decision to West Texas State, while 
NSU was losing to East Texas State 

The Demons not only lost a ball 
game against ETSU, but they also 
lost theservices of three key players. 
Quarterback Bobby Hebert pulled a 
hamstring muscle and may miss this 
weekend's game. Two defensive 
starters, tackle Ed Orgeron and 
' back Spencer Mallett injured their 
knees. Both are doubtful for the 
McNeese clash. 

Last year in Lake Charles the 
Demons upset the Cowboys 13-10 
on a last second Dale Quickel field 
goal. The loss obviously spoiled 
what otherwise was in exceptional 
season for MSU. 

The Cowboys are sure to 
remember what NSU did to them, 
and will come out smoking 

As of right now, the MSU offense 
is smoking v especially the play of 
quarterback Stephen Starring. The 
5-11, 178-pound, Ail-American 
candidate has 692 total yards to his 
credit in the early going, including 
194 on the ground and 498 through 
the air. Starring has also figured in 
on five touchdowns. 

When you play McNeese, you 
cannot key on Starring because of 
the powerful caliber of his backfield 
mates, Buford Jordan and Theron 

McClendbn, dubbed "Mr. 
Speed," ranked 18th nationally in 
rushing totals in 1980 with 1272 
yards. This season, the Cowboys' 
tailback has not performed as well 
as last, but nevertheless has con- 
tributed with 326 yards and one 
touchdown. He is the type that can 
break the game open in one play. 

Jordan, on the other hand, 
provides the power. The 6'2", 220 
pound fullback has chalked up 283 
yards on the ground in an addition 
to a team leading 38 points. 

Flanker Mark Barousse leads all 
receivers with seven catches for 174 
yards and a touchdown. 

On defense, MSU leans toward 
the play of end Rusty Gilbeau. The 
6-4, 250 pound senior is second in 
tackles with 30, plus coming up with 
seven quarterback sacks. 

Head Coach Ernie Duplechin is in 
his third year at the helm of Mc- 
Neese, and all he has done is lead to 
Cowboys to consecutive ap- 
pearances in the Independence Bowl 
and a cumulative record of 23-5. 
Duplechin was named Southland 
Conference Coach of the Year in 
1979, along with being selected a$ 
Louisiana Collegiate Coach of the 
Year in his first season. 

What can you say about th 
Demons? The past two weeks have 
been disasterous, to say the least. 
The NSU defense has given up 
nearly 1000 yards total offense in 
the last two weekends. Hopefully 
the injury situation is lessened and 
the defense can come into the game 
at least 80% strength. 

If Hebert cannot play, Eric 
Barkley will get the starting nod. 
The senior quarterback from 
Shreveport has proven himself to be 
very capable of directing the of- 
fense. Last week, during the loss to 
East Texas State, Barkley completed 
20 of 39 passes for 339 yards and 
two touchdowns. However, he 
suffered two crucial interceptions 
what proved to be costly. 

Both McNeese State and NSU are 
capable of putting many points on 
the scoreboard. Don't be surprised 
if you see a 60-40 score after the 
smoke clears out of Turpin Stadium 
Saturday evening. 

Gametime is a 7 p.m...KDBH- 
FM will broadcast beginning with 
the coaches show at 6:30. 

Northwestern 's Eric Barkley gets off this pass 
in the Demons' 28-21 Homecoming loss to 
East Texas State. In that game Barkfey took 
over the team lead in passing yardage from 
injured regular Bobby Hebert. NSU's Carlton 

Finister rambles for some of his yardage in 
the Demons game against East Texas State. 
The powerful Demon fullback is the Demons 
second leading ground gainer on the year b- 
ehind Demon tailback Kenny Jones(40) with 
two touchdowns to his credit also. 

Demons Grounded By East Texas State 

Demon Playground 

There is a rumor that Marcus 
Welby will be added to the NSU 
coaching staff within the next week. 

Welby is going to be in charge of 
defense. Not defensing against the 
run or the pass, but defending 
against injuries. 

Those who say that the Demons 
don't need another coach, especially 
in this case, think again... 

Over the past four weeks, three- 
fourths of the starting NSU defense 
have missed at least one game due to 
injuries. And in last Saturday's 28- 
21 loss to East Texas State, before a 
Homecoming crowd of 8,500, 
matters became more complicated. 
The call was placed to page Dr. 

During the ETSU contest, no less 
than four Demons went down, and 
stayed out for the remainder of the 
game. Among the more serious of 
the injured were defensive back 
Spencer Mallett, tackle Ed Orgeron, 
and quarterback Bobby Hebert. 

Mallett and Orgeron both have 
knee injuries of unknown severities, 
while Hebert has a pulled hamstring 
muscle and may miss the McNeese 
State clash this weekend. 

So much for the injury 
problems... There was a game 
played Saturday, even some may 
not have thought so. 

The NSU Intramural flag football season got underway this past week with 
games Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. There are three divisions. 
Womens Open, Independent Men, and the Fraternity. 

There were just three games in the first week of play for the women. Susar 
Prince provided all the firepower needed in the VIP's 12-0 win over Tri Sigma. 
She scored twice as the VIP defense shut down the Tri Sigmas. 

Omega Pearls' Pam Kennedy scored two tds to lead her team to a 12-6 wir 
over Sigma Kappa. 

The Pearls were not so lucky in their second game of the week as Phi Mi 
scored an easy 22-6 victory. Lynn Clary, Sherri Shaw and Angela Lasyone al 
scored for Phi Mu. 

Kappa Sigma number one started their season off with two lobsided wins 
over Sigma Tau Gamma, and 33-6 over Theta Chi. Against Sig Tau, Lann> 
Spence and Jay Vail each scored 12 points to lead the way. Spence scored 14 ir 
the second game as Mike Brown added 12 more as they breezed by Theta Chi. 

The 14 points by Spence didn't take high game honors of the week, because 
Mike Prudhomme of Kappa Alpha scored 18 as the KAs crushed Sig Tau 42-6. 
James LaCaze added two touchdowns for KA. 

Phi Beta Sigma jumped out to an early lead in their division as they took twc 
victories during the first week. Reginald Evans led the Sigmas to a 20-6 win 
over TKE. In their second game Evans scored with just one minute remaining 
to regain the lead over Kappa Sigma number two and they went to a 22-14 win. 
Mark Boddie scored all the Sigs points. 

Kappa Sigma number two lost their second game of the week at the end of 
the game, as Omega Psy Phi's Floyd James caught the winning touchdown 
with no time remaining on the clock. Billy Harrington and Rick Switzer each 
scored for the Kappa Sigs. 

The defending Men's champion Conine showed they are still in top form as 
they beat the Bears 38-6. In that game Randy Robinson had the high game of 
the week in the Independent division as he scored four touchdowns. 

David Saylors threw four touchdown passes to lead the Univ. of Yang to a 

36- win over BSU-Wesley. Donny Harrison and Joe Bienvenu each scored 
twice for Yang. 

The Steelers took two victories in the first week as they destroied the Bears 

37- 6 and East Rapides 25-0. Seven Steelers scored against the Bears as Cliffton 
Bolgiano put the only six on the board for the losers. Payton, Jones, Epps, 
and Johnson all scored against East Rapides. 

The Brotherhood's Robert Jackson passed for two tds as they shutout 
G-D.I. Omen 14-0. Donnie Mosley scored twice as they Tasmanian Devils 
took a 30-6 decision over East Rapides. Kip Terrell, Larry Hataway, and 
Parker Thompson all scored in the Kingpins 20-6 win over the Rapides 
Knights. J. Davis scored 12 of the Jocks 21 points as they shutout B and W. 

East Texas State wanted to 
initially go out and prove they 
belonged on the field with NSU, and 
the Lions started off with a bang. 

Following the opening kickoff, 
ETSU moved 75 yards on nine plays 
to go up 7-0. Sophomore quar- 
terback Kyle Mackey hit on two of 
four passes, one of 19 yards to 
Randy Smith, and a 12 yarder to 
Frank Moore. 

The strike to Moore kept the drive 
going on a third and 10 situation 
from the NSU 41 . Two plays later, 
tailback Cary Noiel swept around 
the right side of the Demon defense 
for the final 24 yards with 12:07 left 
in the first quarter. 

After an exchange of punts, the 
Lions roared down the field; this 
time a six-play, 70-march. Four 
runs by Noiel totaling 28 yards, and 
a 35 yard Mackey to Moore aerial 
set up a 14 yard burst off left tackle 
by Ted Sample which put ETSU on 
top 14-0 at the 1:49 mark. 

The Lion defense, anchored by 
tackle Gary Mathews, would put a 
stop on all NSU hopes of rushing 
the ball for the evening, and force 
Eric Barkley (who replaced Hebert 
early in the first quarter) to thow the 

Barkley was effective (20-39, 339 
yards), especially when he looked 

for Victor Oatis. The Demon 
speedburner hooked up with 
Barkley on a 51 -yard touchdown 
strike that cut the deficit to 14-7 
with 10:42 to go in the first half. 

Neither team had another serious 
scoring threat until 2:20 remained 
before intermission. Beginning at 
his own 21, Barkley caught fire, 
finding James Bennett for 20 yards, 
James Walker on an 11 yard toss, 
and Mark Duper for 20 more which 
placed the ball on the ETSU 13. 

Then, with :35 left, Barkley 
looked for Walker. The NSU tight 
end cut toward the inside of Lion 
safety Ben Boston. Boston inad- 
vertantly tripped Walker in the end 
zone, giving the Demons a first and 
goal situation from the one. 

On the ensuing play, Tony Green 
dove over to tie things at the half 14- 

If there was one big play in the 
game, it came with 3:30 to go in the 
third stanza. On a fourth and two 
call from the ETSU 5, the NSU 
coaching staff sent in Dale Quickel 
to attempt a 22-yard field goal 
which would have given the Demons 
the lead. Quickel never got the kick 

The center snap was low and 
bounced away from holder Stan 

Powell. Powell picked it up and 

while rolling right, fired toward 
Walker. Boston stepped in front 
and ripped the ball away from the 
Demon tight end in the end zone 
preserving the tie. 

ETSU seemed to gain more 
confidence as the contest wore on, 
and with 7:21 left in the game, it 
grabbed the lead for good. In eight 
plays, the Lions moved 65 yards 
with Mackey firing a 13 yard TD 
pass to Rickey Spence, making it 21- 

Following a Kevin Rush theft of a 
Barkley pass, ETSU put the game 
out of reach. 

Noiel ran at will through the 
decimated NSU defense for the rest 
of the evening. The Lion halfback 
also caught a 25 yard pass from 
Mackey which set up a 12 yard 
Ricky Dirks scoring burst at 1:52. 

Barkley and Oatis came back with 
a 57 yard touchdown bomb :35 late, 
however it was too little, too late, 
and ETSU went on to end the 
Demons' eight game home winning 

Without a doubt, the difference 
in the contest rested in rushing 
totals, where the Liona ground out 
256 yards yards, NSU had only 87.

In other action, last week's in- 
visible guest panelist Diane Adams, 
was one of the winners sporting a 7-

Other co-winners include guest 
panelist Buddy Wood, Joe Cun- 
ningham, and amazingly, David 

Locked all by himself in fifth 
place was SGA president, joseph 
Stamey. Stamey declined comment 

on his record, but a spokesman for 
the president's office said that 
Stamey was mad at SGA secretary, 
and former PP guest panelist 
Wendy Wyble had helped him Dick 
the LSU — Florida game. 

Tied for last place last week were 
PP regulars Sjoberg and Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner. Sjoberg was still 
seething over the vicious tongue 
lashing that David Stamey had 
earlier given him, and in retaliation, 
and protest, he picked New Orleans 
to defeat Philadelphia. Angry 
people do crazy things. 

This week the panel is blessed 
with the talents of three talented 

Gwendolyn Arthur, a devout Ole 
Miss fan, picked the Rebels to 
defeat Herschel Walker and the rest 
of his buddies at Georgia. 

Larry Robinson, a sophomore 
strong safety with the Demon 
football team was also named to this 
week's panel. 

The final member of this week's 
panel is Chari Barron. Chari knows 
absolutely nothing about football 
except that good field goal kickers 
kick soccer style and come from

In the early days of electricity, these words were 
displayed in rooms equipped with the new Ed-

they were unsafe. Some people feel that same 
way about nuclear power today. But after more 
than 25 years of commercial experience, not a 
single member of the public has been injured by 
the operation of a nuclear power plant. An un- 
matched safety record.

indent Discounts From Local Retailers Discussed 

The president of the Natchitoches 
Chamber of Commerce discussed 
the possibility of NSU student 
discounts by local businesses, and a 
proposed bill that would table bills 
for one week was tabled by the 
Student Government Association at 
their meeting on Oct. 5. 

Eric Harrington, President of the 
Natchitoches Chamber of Com- 
merce, told the SGA that the 
Chamber was looking into 
establishing a 10 per cent discount 
for NSU students, from local 

"We will run a survey, and if we 
get a positive response, we will set it 
up", said Harrington. He added 
that there was some opposition to 
the idea in the business community. 

Harrington Suid that some 
businesses felt they were constantly 
being asked to give contributions 
and donations. He said that the idea 
of giving every student who walked 
in the door a discount might be hard 
for some businesses. 

The local attorney explained that 
the Chamber, which puts on the 
NSU Howdy Dance and the Nat- 
chitoches Christmas Festival, was a 
group concerned about Nat- 
chitoches parish prosperity. 

"One of the things we want to 
promote is NSU", said Harrington. 
He stated that the Chamber was 
responsable for much of the recent 
"NSU is the place for You'' 

In SGA business, a bill that seeks 
to table all but emergency bills for 
one week was introduced by David

reconsider it is made. This bill 
would make a mandantory one 
week wait for all bills introduced to 
the SGA, with the exception of 
emergency bills, which take a two- 
thirds majority vote to pass. 

The bill sparked much discussion, 
and LaVere said, "It would give 
senators enough time to look at a 
bill, research it, and ask questions 
about it". He added, "It would be 
unthinkable for a senator to go into 
the U.S. Congress and... pass a bill 
in one day".

for the contestants. The Lady of the

process of choosing judges for the 

Disc Jocky Deacon Jones will 
make an appearance at NSU on 
Thursday, Oct. 29. According to 
Gary Fields, D.J. has a very 
popular and professional act 

in eluding a show. The show is 
centered around entertaing the 
minority groups on campus. 

Floyd James pointed out that 
minority groups are not getting 
satisfaction from the entertainment 
scheduled by the SUGB. James felt 
that this concert would help calm 
the anomisity felt by the students. 

To help cure the boredom of

Alicia Haynes, 1st Vice President, 
expressed deep concern over the 
lack of participation at SUGB 
activities. Her concern was not only 
centered around students, but 
encompassed the members of 
SUGB. She pointed out that a lot of 
hard work and devotion is being 
put into these events and someone 
should be there to represent them. 

Cinemafocus Committee 
Chairman, Jax Noschese said that 
her Cinemafocus Committee has 
been putting forth a real effort to 
improve the movies on campus, 
Noschese added that one of the 
major problems is while 
Conemafocus is tackling the job of 
showing the film, no one is there to 
watch it. Nochese remarked that 
attendance at the last few filmes has 
been, to say the least unsatisfactory. 

that the bill would create a "muck 
and mire", and would create 
problems if someone brought up a 
bill a week before the semester 

Bolgiano felt that there were 
other ways of creating time to 
consider a bill. He also felt that an 
automatic table was unnecessary, 
said that it was. 

In election actions, the election 
committee for the Oct. 7 elections 
was approved, and Commissioner 
of Elections Diana Kemp an- 
nounced that Mr. and Miss NSU 
would be announced on Nov. 21 at 
the Northeast game. 

The elections committee for Oct. 
7 run-off and State Fair elections, 
and for the proposed constitutional 
amendment, were approved. Vicki 
Williams was appointed Acting 
Commissioner for that day. Max 
Ates, Kevin Bartholemew, Wendy 
Wyble, Todd Moore, and Cliff 
Lopez were appointed to the 

In money matters, Treasurer Max 
Ates announced that more cuts must 
be made in the SGA budget to pay 
the deficit of $3,700. 

"I may be able to cut $1,000 this 
year, but I don't know how. We've 
all ready cut scholarships for the 
executives'', said Ates. 

He said that even with a record 
enrollment at NSU, there were only 
3,127 full-time students. A majority 
of the SGA budget comes from the 
fees of full-time students. 

In the area of Committee 
Reports, Helene Morgan said that a 
Basketball Homecoming was in the 
planning stages, Wendy Scrinshaw 
reported that four ADOS students 
had trouble with tickets for the 
Homecoming game, and David 
Stamey was angered over the actions 
of some members of the 
Homecoming Court.

Helene Morgan said that a spring

Srirrehaw reported that four ADOS 
students had to pay full price for 
tickets to the Homecoming game. 
Ms. Scrinshaw said that she had 
called the Natchitoches campus and 
arranged for them to get a discount 

on their tickets. 

She said that when the students 
arrived, there was no one to help 
them, and they had to pay full 

Homecoming was the topic when 
David Stamey reported that the 
pvent went fairlv well, but ht> wnt 

dissatisfied with the actions of some 
of the Homecoming court . 

"Four of the girls didn't get to the 
platform until way into the second 
quarter, and then all they did was 
take pictures and talk with their 
friends", said Stamey. 

Election Controversy 

Problems once again clouded 
elections on Wed., Oct. 7, when a 
controversy over conflicting reports 
that the ADOS campus did not vote 
within the one day time frame 
specified by the constitution. 

According to Commissioner of 
Elections, Diana Kemp, she received 
a phone call Wednesday from 
Wendy Scrimshaw, the ADOS 
president. Ms. Kemp said that Ms. 
Scrimshaw reported that herself and 
three other people had voted, and 

asked if they could re-open the polls Wednesday. 

The controversy continued as 
Kemp said that she phoned the 
ADOS SGA Advisor, Robert 
Hornaman, to ask if ADOS had 

Kemp said that Hornaman told 
her that "He was sure ADOS had 
voted that day". (Wednesday) 

Hornaman, when contacted by 
the SAUCE, denied having con- 
firmed that ADOS voted on 
Wednesday, although he did 
confirm that he had talked to Kemp 

at ADOS the next day. 

Chief Justice David Martin was 
called in to review the constitution 
to see if it made provision for a two- 
day election. 

Ms. Kemp said that they decided 
that the constitution called for a one 
day open election. 

In a later conversation between 
Martin and Scrimshaw, Kemp said 
that Scrimshaw first said that she 

"They tried to set up the polls 
Wednesday... but the polls were not 
opened, and they voted Thursday", 
said Hornaman. 

Hornaman explained that past 
practice had been to hold the 
elections at ADOS over a two-day 
period. He said that ADOS students 
have split-scheduling. 

Ms. Scrimshaw verified to the 
SAUCE that in the past the polls 

herself had voted, and later in the had been opened for two days, but 

same conversation denied that the 
polls were opened. 

Acoording to Kemp, Scrimshaw 
said that she had misunderstood the 

When contacted by the SAUCE, 
Martin confirmed that Scrimshaw 

denied that the polls were opened 
for two days last week. 

"The polls were opened from 8 
a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday", said 

The ADOS campus voted for 
State Fair Court, and will not vote 

changed her story during the course on the referendum until Monday, 
of the conversation. 

Ms. Kemp said that in a con- 
versation with x Scrimshaw later that 

Oct. 12. 
In the 

day, Scrimshaw admitted that she 
had lied about voting to Kemp. 
Kemp stated that Scrimshaw had 
reported opening the polls to cover 
for ADOS Commissioner of 

Elections Pami Lambert, "who had all the headaches that elections have 

light of the conflicting 
reports on ADOS voting days, Ms. 
Kemp was asked if these elections 
would wind up in the Student 
Supreme Court. 

"I don't think it will, in light of 

not done her job and had failed to 
open the elections". 

Based on these claims, Kemp 
said, "I allowed ADOS to vote on 

caused. I was going to contest the 
elections, but I decided not to", said 
Ms. Kemp. 

Free Speech Alley Criticizes Campus 

Williams Proposes Impeachment 

A bill that would impeach Diana 
Kemp, Commissioner of Elections 
of the Student Government 
Association was introduced by 
Russell Williams on Thursday, Oct. 

Williams said, "A lot has been 
going wrong with our elections and I 
just want to find out what the 
Problem is". 

Williams said that he did not 
necessarily want Ms. Kemp removed 
from office, but that the SGA was 
losing the respect of the students, 
and that something had to be done 
to show the students that the SGA is 
concerned with the inefficiency. 

Ms. Kemp told the SAUCE that 
there were no specified charges 
against her. "I want to know what 

charges, what mistakes, and I want 
evidence and proof", said Ms. 
Kemp, adding, "I have done my 

The measure will be voted on 
Monday, at the weekly SGA 
meeting, and would require a 
majority vote to bring im- 
peachment proceedings against Ms. 

If a majority of the SGA senators 
voted to beging proceedings, a trial 
would be conducted. The SGA 
would be the jurors, and the Student 
Supreme Court Justice would serve 
as as judge over the hearines. 

Any charges would be presented 
during the trial, and a two-thirds 
vote would be needed to convict. 

'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not 
going to put up with it!" seemed to 
be the general concensus of the first 
Free Speech Alley held in the 
Student Union Lobby, Weds. 
October 7. Everything from sports 
to the Sadat assination was 

Clifton Bolgiano led the barrage 
which enabled and encouraged 
students and at times faculty to 
express opinions, gripes, and any 
general comments they might want 
to make. Sitting on chairs, the floor, 
leaning against the walls, were 
about 75 people . About 25 par- 
ticipated as the others looked on. 

At one point a foreign student 
expressed his views of the Sadat 
assination and insinuated that the 
United States C.I. A. might 
somehow be involved. The old red, 
white, and blue was stoutly 
defended by David Stamey who 
recognized the student's ambition 
by studying in America, but Stamey 
pointed out, America is the best 
possible place to live. 

Most comments were criticisms of 
the campus and its running. Some 
of the complaints included: 1. The 
shoddy fashion in which elections 
are held. This was in reference to 
both voter turn-out and to the 
discrenpency which resulted in 
having to re-run SGA elections. 2. A 
campus police officer took the stage 
to inform students that no parking 
signs really do mean no parking 
and that tickets will be issued. At 
this point, Mr. Cameron took the 
stand to contend that the rise in 
ticket price from $2.00 to $10.00 was 
in fact taxation without 
representation. He encouraged 
students to get involved and to let 
themselves be heard. "Stay away 
from class for one day. All of 
you," he said as a way of drawing 

attention to complaints. 3. The 
Current Sauce was also blasted with 
one student stating it was not 
"controversial" enough. Other 
students also had rather, ahem, 
uncomplimentary remarks for the 
campus publication. 4. The cross 
walk situation was brought to 
recognition. "Cars don't stop for 
you, do they?" Bolgiano asked. 

"There are supposed to be fines 
given to those people who don't 
stop. Has anyone ever been given a 
ticket for not stopping? No." 5. 
Two of the oldest and worst 
problems were again brought up. 
The sludge that covers Chaplain's 
lake and the sludge that fills the air 
courtesy of the Country Pride 
People. 6. A small dark haired girl 
with huge glasses took the stage to 
say she was tired of there being no 
toilet paper in the dorms. She also 

complained of the general clutter 
found around campus. 7. One 
student who took the stage a 
number of times was very adament 
in his opinion of the infirmary. The 
bearded youth was also concerned 
with the emphasis placed on 
atheletics with neglect going to the 
academies. 8. Academics were again 
brought up when one student 
complained that NSU was greatly 
behind in its media department. He 
pointed out that some colleges 
broadcast their own news show and 
the equipment in the media needed 
to be up-dated. 

The Free Speech Alley afforded 
students the oppurtunity to voice 
their opinion and in this amplified 
way maybe get something done. All 
the complaints were done from the 
point that they love NSU and want 
to see it improved. A lot of steam 
was generated by many of the 
comments. It can only be hoped that 
this steam goes to organizing 

Free Speech Alley moderator Clifton Bolgiano raises his 
hand in attempt to quiet some of the crowd during the Wed- 
nesday forum. The Free Speech Alley has been a big success so 
far, and hopes are that it will become a permanent fixture for 
Northwestern students.

ALOC Program Assists Students 

Tuesday, October 13, 1981, The Current Sauce, Page 3 

With many new improvements 
and a lot of hard work, the 
American Language and Orien- 
tation Center (ALOC) at NSU is 
once again assisting many foreign 
students in achieving a higher 

According to the head of the 
program, Marion Nesom, ALOC 
has been increasing not only in the 
number of students but in the 
variety of countries that they 
represent. At the present, there are 
five major sections of the world 
representing 21 different countries. 

There are students here from 
seven different countries in Central 
and South America. They include: 
1 student from Brazil; 1 from Chile; 
5 from Columbia; 1 from Ecuador; 
1 from Mexico; 1 from Panama; 
and 26 from Venezuela. 

From the Far and Middle East 
there are currently 2 students from 
Bangladesh and 2 from Indonesia; 3 
students apiece from Japan, 

Thailand, and Kuwait; 4 students 
from Iran; and 1 student each from 
the remaining countries of Hong 
Kong, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and 

Europe is represented by four 
students: 2 from France; 1 from the 
Netherlands; and 1 from Belgium, 
while the African country of Nigeria 
is represented bv one student. 

The ALOC program lasts for 12 
months and consists of nine five- 
hour English classes at three dif- 
ferent levels with three at each level 
plus a one hour course in American 
culture. All beginners in the 
program must take English and 
nothing else, whereas at the in- 
termediate level another course such 
as math may be added in addition to 
English and at the advanced level a 
student may take two to three 
English classes with two other 
undergraduate courses. 

The recent move of ALOC to the 
second floor of Caldwell Hall has 

given them the extra space needed 
for improvements. The students 
now have their own lounge supplied 
with free books and ten cent coffee 
with a small study area set up at the 
far end with desks and typewriters. 

Aside from this, workers recently 
constructed an electronic laboratory 
for listening to tapes and a library 
and learning center has also been 

established emphasizing the im- 
provement of skills such as com- 
position, grammar, reading, and 

Overall, the ALOC program and 
learning centers are both very 
impressive and one which I'm sure

Sadat Death Brings Reaction 

The assassination of Egyptian 
President Anwar Sadat October 5, 
brought mixed reactions from 
students and faculty at NSU. 

"When I heard that Sadat died, I 
felt pity because he was one of the 
greatest leaders for peace in the 
Middle East," said Abu Siddisue, a 
native of Bang La Desh. 

"I think that it might be a Libyan 
conspiracy because Libya is trying 
very hard to split Egypt from the 
U.S. and Israel," he added. 

Siddisue said that he thought the 
assassination would effect Bang La 
Desh because it is 90% Moslem. 

Kenneth Knotts, Assistant 
professor of Political Science, said 
that he (Sadat) was the best friend we 
had in the Middle East, but so many 
people wanted him dead that it 
would be hard to blame any one 

"The line of ascendency would 
place the Vice President in charge," 
he said, "and like Sadat, Hosni 
Mubarak is pro-west and pro-U.S." 

"Mubarak is unknown, but no 
more so than Sadat when he 
assumed office after Nassar's 
death," Knotts said. 

Knott's opinion of Egypt's im- 
mediate future is that of ap- 
prehension, on that country's part, 
until events are sorted out, and it is 
determined who was behind the 

Mehdi Kaboudania, an Iranian 
student, felt that an Islamic 
religious faction, or the CIA could 
have been behind the assassination. 

"Maybe the CIA was behind the 
incident to stamp out the Islamic 
revolution," Kaboudania said. 

"Before Sadat was killed, 2000 
Islamic revolutionaries were 
arrested in Egypt after demon-

Fraser Snowden of Nor-

the Interface '81 conference on the

Snowden was in Baton Rouge last 
weekend to present a paper at the 
Louisiana State Philosophy 
Convention. "Socrates in the 
Hospital: On Being a Philsopher-in- 
Residence at a Rural Hospital" was 
the title in his presentation. 

Supported by a humanist-in- 
residence grant from the Louisiana 
Committee for the Humanities, 
Snowden developed the papers on 
his experience last summer as 
philosopher-in-residence at the 
Natchitoches Parish Hospital. 

"The purpose of the paper," said 
Snowden, "was to explain the 
various aspects of the hospital 
program and to demonstrate the 
value of applied philosophy in the 
area of health care.

The Word

... The Word is Who's To Blame ? 

It may seem a bit redundant to keep writing about the happenings in the 
Student Government these past couple of weeks, but the fact is that there is 
a major controversy sitting right here in our own back yard and apparently, 
and unfortunatley, some heads will role. 

It seems a shame that such consequences can befall a college student just 
for holding a student office. But in this case, we may just see a Nor- 
thwestern student removed from an office that she was elected to by the 
students of NSU. 

Does it seem fair? Does it seem right? If a person is incompetent, then 
obviously that person should be removed. But, there have been a whole lot 
of mistakes involving BOTH the NSU campus and the ADOS campus. 
Therefore, can one person be given all of the blame for the election 

Logically, with the magnitude of the errors, it would seem that the fault 
can not be levied totally on one person. But in this case, one person does get 
all of the blame. 

Why? Is she the scapegoat? Hopefully not. It would be a shame to single 
out one person. When the folly of errors was over, there were several people 
besides Diana Kemp who should shoulder some of the blame. 

One person in particular whoshouldsuck it up and come forward to take 
some blame is SGA — ADOS President, Wendy Scrimshaw. 

Wendy said that she had voted and about three other people at the 
ADOS campus had voted on the day that the election was supposed to be 
held. Wendy later retracted that statement. Then she said that no one had 
voted and that she had made that statement to cover up for their commiss- 
ionar of elections, Pami Lambert. 

If Wendy said that she "retracted" her statement to Diana, isn't it safe to 
assume that "retracted" is just a fancy synonym for, "I lied." 

And if there was one retraction, couldn't there have been more? Who's 
really to say who is telling the truth, and who is just "retracting"? 

And then what about the entire SGA itself? Surely with all those 
senators there is one who knows his NSU Constitution well enough to know 
about elections. 

Admittedly, knowing the entire election code and memorizing the rules 
and regulations governing elections is not the responsibility of the typical 
SGA senator. But goodness knows that a familiarization with the Con- 
stitution, and the election codes, wouldn't hurt any of our senators. It 
might even lead to fewer major catastrophies like this one. 

You may wonder where all of this is leading to. Well there are two places. 

One. The blame for the election mishaps certainly shouldn't be laid on 
one person alone. In this case, there is plenty of blame for everybody. 

Two. Next time there is a senate election at NSU, and fortunatly after this 
week's runoff there won't be one for a good while, remember that the 
person you vote for should be responsible, smart, and above all, HONEST.

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

Changes Need To Be Made In Elections 

Thoughts while wondering why 
we have to put up with mistake after 
mistake after mistake when it comes 
to student elections... 

...We don't. 

For years Student Government 
Association officials have been 
unable to understand low voter 
turnouts in campus elections. For 
years SGA elections have been 
trouble-filled because of careless 
mistakes by election administrators 
and personnel. 

Is it really any wonder the voter 
turnout is not what it could be? 

Shoddy administration of SGA 
elections is fast becoming an NSU 
tradition. And why the SGA 
continues to tolerate the ineptitude 
is beyond understanding. 

It seems that for several years 
now the commissioner of elections 
has spent far more time making 
excuses than anything else. We may 
have an all-time alibi high this year. 

What really burns me about the 
whole mess is that the Com- 
missioner of Elections is paid a nice 
salary-from student fees-to do one 
thing and one thing only: Ad- 
minister student elections. Why no 
one can seem to do a competent job 
in the past is hard to fathom. 

If the election code is too complex 
for a college student to understand, 

let's change it. If the commissioner 
is unable to handle the position, 
let's change commissioners. 

Something has to be done, now , 
to restore student faith in the NSU 
election process. 

When was the last time we had an 
election that wasn't marred by a 
blunder that forced either a revote 
or a Supreme Court decision, and in 
some cases, both? 

This year's commissioner, Diana 
Kemp, is not an ogre. She seems to 
work hard at the job. Sadly, it 
hasn't paid off. 

The problems continue to mount 
as student interest in the voting 
process continues to drop. Our 
patience is wearing thin. And the 
voters are not the only ones who 
suffer from the shabby election 

In the past two years we've had an 
exceptionally large number of 
candidates in most elections. Too 
many times, especially recently, 
confusion over the balloting has led 
to the wrong candidate being told he 
had won. 

People who were enthusiastic 
about NSU and ready to get in- 
volved have gone through the 
mismanaged election process and 
understandably emerged 
disillusioned with NSU in general 

and the SGA is particular. The sad 
episode last spring in the SGA 
treasurer's race was possibly the 
most blatant example-possibly, 
because there are so many choices. 

Max Ates and Larry Hall were 
candidates in the runoff for the 
treasurer's post. After voting was 
finished and the results tabulated, 
rechecked and verified by the 
Election Board, Hall was declared 
the winner pending final formal 
approval by the SGA Senate. 

Then, a mistake was discovered. 
Nearly 36 hours after voting ended 
and roughly 34 hours after he was 
named the winner, Hall was in- 
formed he had lost. It was a 
careless, callous, unpardonable 

Even if Ates did garner more 
votes than Hall, as the Supreme 
Court eventually confirmed, the 
damage was irreparable. There was 
no recourse for Larry Hall. 

The plethora of errors plaguing 
this Fall's elections has been 
documented in the Current Sauce. 
You think after such a disgraceful 
affair last spring, extra care would 
be taken to ensure the integrity of 
the election process. It hasn't been. 

Even the little things have been 
botched. Why can't we have pic- 
tures of all the candidates posted on 

David Stamey's Amazin' Pointz 

the Bulletin Board at the Polls? 
There's only one chance for the 
candidates to have their pictures 
taken by the NSU photo lab and and 
obviously, by the number of blank 
spaces on the board, not everyone 
was aware of that chance. Another 
inexcusable goof. 

Maybe it's just the state we live 
in. Remeber the 1979 gubernatorial 
elections which were decided not at 
the polls but in the courtroom? 

Regardless of the reason, the fact 
is that it's time for a change. 

Confidence in campus voting is 
rightfully at an all-time low. The 
ballot box is the basis of the 
Democratic process. If we cannot 
trust in the proper administration of 
the voting process, we cannot trust 
in the results. 

It is imperitive the SGA take 
immediate action to correct the 
mismanagement. The SGA's 
credibility is at stake. Without a 
fair, just and proper elections 
procedure available to select its 
membership, the Senate is a 
voiceless body making meaningless 

If the election code is too com- 
plex, let's change it. If the Com- 
missioner is incompetent, let's get a 
new one. 

Whatever it takes, Northwestern 
students deserve-and demand- 
immediate improvements.

The Ghost Of Caldwell Hall 

Thoughts while wondering if 
NSU holds the record for most 
times an election was held in a single 

...Or if Natchitoches dorm holds 
the record for most times to be 
without electricity in a single week. 

...Or if NSU can beat out New 
York City for the record for most 
cars with slashed tires. 

And you thought il was going to 
talk about impeachment. 

No readers, Rag has something to 
say of far more controversy than a 
simple impeachment. 

A highly anti-NSU bill was passed 
by the SGA last night. They voted to 
put floodlights in front of the famed 
NSU pillars. 

For those of you who have any 
background on the three colums in 
back of Caldwell Hall, you know 
the serious danger this poses. 

How will we ever see the ghost of 
Caldwell Hall? If we can't stand in 
the shadow of the pillar, as the 
ritual requires, will our heavenly 
friend refuse to show herself? 

"Isabella" was first documented 
in 1912. She has been written about 
throughout the years in this very 

Well, the stories, accounts, ana 
legends vary, but the one 1 like is of 
Isabella the heart-broken nun. 

As the story goes, a young woman 
by the name of Isabella fell in love 
with the son of a wealthy planter. 
The two were engaged to be 
married, but the father of Isabella's 
lover did not approve. He sent the 
boy on a trip abroad, and Isabella's 
lover never returned. 

The heartbroken girl vowed to be 
faithful to his memory, and joined a 

Time doesn't heal all wounds, 
because as the years iassed Isabella's 
lonliness overcame her. One late 
night, the nun took a knife and 
ended her sorrow. As she plunged 
the blade into her heart, the blood 
gushed out of the wound. The girl 
fell against the wall, leaving a 
bloody handprint on the wall as her 
testimony to the world. 

The accounts of Isabella vary 
also. The first documented story, 
from the diary of a girl at the 
Normal School in 1912, seem to be 
the most violent. The girls claims 
she saw Isabella carrying the blood- 
stained head of her lover. 

One of the most recent accounts 
claims to have contacted sabella by 
way of a Ouiji Board. During this 
contact, the ghost told her audience 
that she wanted to live in the oldest 
building on campus. 

The last time the ghost-chasers 
talked to Isabella, strange things 
began to happen. One girl's tran- 
sistor radio turned on and off in 
front of her eyes. Mysterious doors 
kept slamming, although no one 
was ever around to see them. 

During the night, one of the 
buildings on campus burned to the 

Isabella has had to move several 
times, as the oldest building on 
campus changes every now and 
then. One of her reported homes 
was torn down, and reports said 
that you could hear her moaning 
from inside the building. 

By the way, she has been seen in 
Varnado dorm once or twice. 
Recently though, she has spent so 
much time in Caldwell Hall, she has 
been dudbed "The Ghost of 
Caldwell Hall". 

The ritual required to bring 
Isabella forth is a closely guarded 
secret, but part of it entails standing 
in the shadow of the pillars at 
Caldwell. Now you see why it would 
be a crime for the SGA to install 
floodlights and destroy the sh- 
adows. For the sceptics who don't 
believe here even is a ghost, just ask 
around campus. Or even better, if 
you act quickly, you may just get a 
look at the glowing figure of a 
lonely nun yourself! 

Letter To The Editor 

What is going on with our SGA ? 
Why can't Diana Kemp get her act 
togethor in regards to all the 
election mix-ups? Now I hear that 
ADOS got to vote one extra day 
(Thurday), because Wendy 
Scrimshaw says that she never 
opened the polls up there on the day 
she was supposed to (Wednesday). 

Well, isn't it Diana's respon- 
sibility to see that things like this 
don't happen on Election Day. 
When I asked Diana what was going 
on, she said, "I don't know." 

Doesn't know? Good Grief!! It's 
bad enough that the senator elec- 

tions were mixed up. I sure feel 
sorry for those senators who were 
sworn in and now have to step down 
just because Diana Kemp doesn't 
know what the NSU Contstitution 
and the Supreme Court have to say 
about elections. How can anyone so 
incompetent remain in office? 

I also feel sorry for the students 
who don't even know their SGA is 
screwing up. Why should anyone 
support an organization that has 
become as unproductive as the

Public Relations Seminar 

A Public Relations seminar 
sponsored by the North Louisiana 
Chapter of Public Relations Society 
of America will be held Sat., Oct. 
17, from 9 a.m. till 4 p.m. at 
Louisiana State University in 

As an example of PRSA's 
committment to educate our publics 
concerning the purpose of 
public relations and the importance 
of the public relations professional 
in society, this seminar is the result 
of the planning of many area public 
relation professionals. 

Targeted toward students, non- 
students considering public relations 
as a profession, beginning 
professionals and experienced 
professionals, this seminar will not 
only define the profession and the 
vast needs it meets, but will also pr- 

ovide information on how to best 
develop yourself to meet these 

Although general in scope, in- 
formation presented will be very 
beneficial in providing insight into 
the practical aspects of public 

This seminar is designed to help 
you meet this challenge by taking

The KNWD column sitters took 
their posts at 12 noon on Thursday, 
Oct. 8, not to return to land until 
Saturday at 6 p.m., some 54 hours 

The kick-off of the KNWD 
Radiothon brought in $1,650 in cash 
and pledges, and while this was 
short of the $8,000 goal, KNWD 
General Manager Richard Fillet was 
optimistic about the results. 

"Ideally it was a success, they did 
what they said they would, and sat 
through three rainstorms in the 
process", said Fillet. 

The "column sitters", pulled off 
a feat to bring attention to the fact 
that KNWD is expanding their 
power, and does need money for the

were collected, the sation would 
have enough money to buy their 
first piece of equipment, at a cost of 


The fate of the two KNWD'ers, 
Kirt Boudreaux and Ginny 
Whitaker for a future Radiothon in 
the spring was in limbo. 

"Kirt said he'd do it again next 
week, and Ginny just headed for the 
shower", said Fillet. 

Fillet added that the weather and

Phi Mu 

Phi Mu's held an open house on 
Oct. 3, to show off their newly 
remodel house to their parents and 

The Phi Mus invite the NSU 
students to come by and look at the 
house if they ever happen to be 
passing by Greek Hill. 

Another Homecoming event that 
proved to be a success was the 
parade. The Phi Mus received first 
runner up in the float contest, and 
the Kappa Sigs received first place 

with their football float. Many 
thanks to all the girls who wprked 
on the float. 

In addition to this, Phi Mus also 
won first place in the song contest 
held at the recreation complex 
during the week of Homecoming. 

During the end of last month, 
pledges and actives had a retreat at 
Anna Hills camp. It was a fun night 
and the pledges discovered who 
their big sisters were.

The life and works of primitive 
Painter Clementine Hunter, the 
Black Grandma Moses" for

^ Dr. Mildred H. Bailey of 
Northwestern in the current issue of 
Modern Maturity magazine. 
The article, "Painted Memories

n e October-November issue, which 
Jjas been distributed to more than 7 
pillion readers who subscribe to the

Bailey states that Clementine 

Hunter, who started painting her 
primitive pictures in the 1940's at 
Melrose Plantation in Natchitoches 
Parish, "has produced more than 
4,000 canvases-virtually all from 
childhood memories." 

Recognized for their bright colors 
and simple shapes, Mrs. Hunter's 
paintings "present her personal 
view of a vanishing part of Ame rica: 
black life on the Southern plan- 
tation," stated Bailey. 

Clemintine Hunter's paintings 
hang in homes throughout the 
United States and Europe. They are 
also dislayed by the New York State 
Historical Society and have been 
exhibited by the Museum of 
American Folk Art in New York 

She was the first black to have a 
one-person showing in the New 
Orleans Museum, reported Dr. 
Bailey, who is chairman of the 
Department of Elementary 
Education at NSU. 

Clemtine Hunter has been the 
subject of numerous articles for 
major publications and at least two 
television documentary films. 


Drop your guard for a 
minute. Even though you're 
in college right now, there 
are many aspects of the Army 
that you might find very 

Maybe even irresistible. 
See for yourself. 


You read it right. 

The Army's Health Professions Scholarship 
Program provides necessary tuition, books, lab 
fees, even microscope rental during medical 

Plus a monthly stipend that works out to 
about $6,000 a year. 

After you're accepted into medical 
school, you can be accepted into our program. 
Then you're commissioned and you go 
through school as a Second Lieutenant in the 
Army Reserve. 

The hitch? Very simple. After you graduate, 
you give the Army a year as a doctor for every 
year the Army gave you as a med student, with 
a minimum obligation of three years' service. 


Besides scholarships to medical school, the 
Army also offers AMA-approved first-year 
post-graduate and residency training programs. 

Such training adds no further obligation to 
the scholarship participant. But any Civilian 
Graduate Medical Education sponsored by the 
Army gives you a one-year obligation for 
every year of sponsorship, with a minimum 
obligation of two years' service. 

But you get a $9,000 annual bonus every 
year you're paying back medical school or post- 
graduate training. 

So you not only get your medical education 
paid for, you get extra pay while you're paying 
it back. Not a bad deal. 


The rich tradition of Army Nursing is one 
of excellence, dedication, even heroism. And 
it's a challenge to live up to. 

Today, an Army Nurse is the epitome of 
professionalism, regarded as a critical member 
of the Army Medical Team. 

A BSN degree is required. And the clinical 
spectrum is almost impossible to match in 
civilian practice. 

And, since you'll be an Army Officer, you'll 
enjoy more respect and authority than most of 
your civilian counterparts. You'll also enjoy 
travel opportunities, officer's pay and officer's 

Army Nursing offers educational oppor- 
tunities that are second to none. As an Army 
Nurse, you could be selected for graduate degree 
programs at civilian universities. 


but not necessarily 
assigned to active duty. Find 
out about it. 


You get tuition, pay and living allowances. 
You can also take Nurse Practitioner courses 
and courses in many clinical specialities. All on 
the Army. 

While these programs do not cost you any 
money, most of them do incur an additional 
service obligation. 


If you're about to get your law degree and 
be admitted to the bar, you should consider a 
commission in the Judge Advocate General 
Corps. Because in the Army you get to practice 
law right from the start. 

While your classmates are still doing other 
lawyers' research and other lawyers' briefs, you 
could have your own cases, your own clients, 
in effect, your own practice. 

Plus you'll have the pay, prestige and privi- 
leges of being an Officer in the United States 
Army. With a chance to travel and make the- • 
most of what you ve worked so hard to 
become. A real, practicing lawyer. Be an Army 


Though you're too late for a 4-year 
scholarship, there are V, 2-. and even 1-year 
scholarships av ailable. 

Thev include tuition, books, and lab fees. 
Plus S 100 a month living allowance. Naturally 
they re very competitiv e Because 


You can get a $1,500 
bonus just for enlisting in some Army Reserve 
units. Or up to $4,000 in educational benefits. 

You also get paid for your Reserve duty. It 
comes out to about $1, 100 a year for one weekend 
a month and two weeks annual training. 

And now we have a special program to help 
you fit the Army Reserve around your school 

It's worth a look, 


Some may find college to be the right place 
at the wrong time for a variety of reasons The 
Army can help them, too. 

A few years in the Army can help them get 
money for tuition and the maturity to use it 

The Army has a program in which money 
saved for college is matched two-for-one by the 
government. Then, if one qualifies, a generous 
bonus is added to that. 

So 2 years of service can get you up to 
$ 1 5.200 for college, 3 and 4 years up to $20, 100. 
In addition, bonuses up to $5,000 are available 
for 4-year enlistments in selected skills. 

Add in the experience and maturity gained, 
and the Army can send an individual back to 
college a richer person in more ways than one. 

We hope these Army opportunities have 
intrigued you as well as surprised you. Because 
there is indeed a lot the Army can offer a bright 
person like you.

degree, an ROTC scholarship helps 
you towards the gold bars of an

Advertising Campaign To Increase Tourism 

The Louisiana Office of Tourism 
and its advertising agency, Coleman 
Robertson, Inc., are set to begin a 
new advertising and promotional 
campaign designed to greatly in- 
crease tourism in Louisiana. 

"Louisiana-A Dream State" is 
the campaign theme and slogan 
around which the Office of Tourism 
will build the first nation-wide, 
multi-media advertising campaign 
the state has ever launched in the 
tourism effort. 

Starting in November ads 
graphically depicting the state's 
theme will appear in such regional 
and national publications as the 
New York Times, Chicago Tribune, 
and Washington Post Sunday 
magazines; National Geographic, 
Holiday USA, L'Actualite, Texas 
Monthly and New West. Other 
advertising and promotional efforts 
include the playing of a new song 
commissioned expressly for this 
campain and entitled "Louisiana~A 
Dream State," on radio stations 
around the state; a series of 
billboards at locations in 
Louisiana's neighboring states, as 
well as brochures, bumper stickers 
and t-shirts. Future plans for the 
campaign include television spots as 

According to Cornelia Carrier, 
assistant secretary for the Office of 
Tourism, tourism is currently a 2.5 
billion dollar industry in this state, 
and yet has still not acheived its 
market potential. "It grows everv 

year, but not at the rate at which it 
should considering our natural 
assets," Carrier said. 

"Part of the problem is that 
competition for the tourist dollar is 
now so fierce that to get your share 
of the market, you have to be 
aggressive-and imaginative," she 
explains. "A good advertising 
campaign like the one we're now 
launching is the first step toward 
really dynamic growth in the in- 
dustry." Ms. Charrier cites New 
York's "I LOVE NEW YORK" as 
an example of how effective a good 
advertising campaign can be. In 
April she invited the marketing 
director of the New York Ad- 
vertising agency that conducted the 
campaign to address the annual 
Governor's Conference on Tourism 
and explain how New York did it. 

Robbie Robertson, president of 
Coleman Robertson, has crafted a 
campaign designed to attract what 
he calls "committed travelors." 
"Committed travelors," says 
Robertson, "are people to' whom 
travel is an end in itself and a high 
priority ingredient in their lives. 
They're also the people who are 
most likely to be attracted by ad- 
vertising that offers the lure of 
change. Something different, like 

Under the direction of Ms. 
Charrier, Coleman Robertson 
began an intense research effort to 
pinpoint the demographic and 
motivational patterns of the target 

audience. In association with 
Travel Pulse, the nation's largest 
travel research group, Coleman 
Robertson extracted the marketing 
information that was the basis for 
the campaign frr.n the work of 
noted researcher and author, Daniel 
Yankelovich, and pinpointed what 
the target market was looking for. 

"I was thrilled," says Robertson, 
"to discover that we have already 
exactly what they're looking for. 
The market we are after is looking 
for adventure, ambience, scenery- 
and something a little different, all 
of which Louisiana has in abun- 
dance." Research also indicated 
that the states and countries that 
had conducted successful ad- 
vertising campaigns had been able 
to also promote what Robertson 
calls "the lure of change," the 
"something different" that the 
target market was looking for. 
"Basically," says Robertson, 
"people travel for the sake of 
change. They want to go someplace 
that they think is more exciting and 
stimulating than wherever they're 
coming from." 

In response to this information 
Coleman Robertson drafted the 
phrase, "a dream state" as the 
theme around which they would 
build the campaign. The phrase 
portrays Louisiana as being both an 
ideal state or a place perceived as 
being highly attractive and also a 
place suspended in time-like a

Miss Hawthorne said, "This 
educational session deals with 
randomly placing participants into

NSU Vandalism Increases 

Vehicles have been stolen and 
vandalized this past weekend on 
Nortwestern campus. The 
University Police does not know 
who is involved or why its even 
happenig as of yet. There are not 
enough clues to tell whether it is an 
inside or outside job. 

It all started out to be a pleasant 
homecoming weekend but ended up 
in a sight of disgust for those who 
were victimized. 

On October 3 around 7:30 p.m. 
Mark Thigpen of Mansfield, La. 
reported that three of the tires on his 
G.M.C. truck had received one and 
one half inch deep cuts. His truck 
was parked in front of Natchitoches 
Hall. The investigation is still in- 

Heideith Myles of Shreveport La. 
reported that her car had been 
broken into while parked near the 
Industrial Art building during the 
football game. A wallet belonging 
to Paula Hunter had been stolen out 
of the 1980 beige and cream Cutlass. 

The wallet contained $10.00 and 
other personal items. 

John Young reported to the 
University Police approximately 
4:45 p.m. on Oct. 2, that his 1972 
Opel had been broken into. A few 
of his personal items were stolen. 

Reginald Thompson of Nat- 
chitoches, La. had been a victim of 
theft. Mr. Thompson said that his 
white top blue green bottom 1965 
Chevy had been stolen. Apparently 
it had been hot wired while parked 

behind Bullard Hall. Sgt. Miller 
and Mr. Thompson made a tour of 
campus but no vehicle was in sight. 
Later on that night approximately 
1:00 a.m. Sgt. Miller sighted a blue 
1968 Dodge parked at an odd angle 
near the Industrial Education 
building. The car was unlocked and 
the window was down. There were 
signs that this vehicle had also been 
hot wired. There may have been 
some connection between the two. 

Mario Johnson of Timpson, TX 
was a victim of tire slashing, He said 
"I feel that the vandalizer or 
vandalizers need to be turned into 
the hands of the victims and let us 
do the justice!" 

Organizations To Lose Charter 

Some NSU organizations are in

Jordan, McClendon Run Wild 

McNeese Rolls Over Over NSU 42-21 

by Bob Sjoberg 

It was no different than last 
Saturday's 28-21 loss to East Texas 
State. The results and injury 
problems were the same. Only the 
opponent was changed. And, 
unfortunately, that opponent was 
McNeese State. A little switch in 
caliber from the previous week you 
say?. ..It was evident in the final 

The Cowboys, highly touted 
heading into the 1981 season, had 
their high-powered running attack 
in full drive as they pasted the 
Demons 42-21. 

Tailbacks Buford Jordan and 
Theron McClendon each cracked 
the 100 yard mark. Jordan, 6-2, 220 
pound junior, ran virtually at will, 
coming up with 141 yards and two 
touchdowns. He also had one score 
called back after a quick referee's 
whistle, and another on a penalty. 

Jordan's running mate, Mc- 
Clendon, was just as effective. The 
5-9, 165 senior ran for 100 yards and 
a 24 touchdown burst early in the 
second period which gave MSU a 
lead they would never relinquish at 

The Cowboys rushed 72 times for 
381 yards. All six MSU scores came 
on the ground against an in- 
creasingly crippled NSU defense. 

When will the injury parade end? 

Sam Jenkins, who was the only 
healthy starting defensive lineman, 
went down with an apparent leg 
injury in the third stanza and did 
not return. Coach A.L. Williams 
will undoubtedly welcome this 
weekend's open date in hopes that 
some of the walking wounded will 
return healthy for the annual State 
Fair Classic with Louisiana Tech. 

Stan Powell had a chance to show 
his stuff when he replaced starting 
quarterback Eric Barkley in the 
second after Barkley was picked off 
three times in his 11 attempts. And 
the sophomore from Shreveport was 
impressive, but not a miracle worker. 

Powell hit on 17 of 30 attempts 
for 248 yards, including a pair of 
scoring tosses; one to Jerry Wheeler 
and another to Mark Duper. 

Before 10,200 fans, the Demons 
set out to prove they belonged on 
the same field as McNeese; and with 
a little help from the guests, NSU 
jumped on top 7-0. 

At 8:25 of period one, Jordan 
coughed the ball up for the second 
time in two minutes, and the hosts 
accepted with pleasure. After end 
Karl Lane pounced on the Cowboy 
tailback's second muff at the MSU 
42, it took the Demons only five 
plays to grab the lead.

yards to put NSU up 7-0 with 6:37 
left. Finister carried the ball three 
times for 29 yards in the drive. 

That was about the last time the 
Demon fans had anything to cheer 
about as Jordan and McClendon 
went to work... 

Following the kickoff, MSU 
ground out a 12-play, 64 yard march 
to knot things. McClendon ripped 
off large chunks of real estate and 
quarterback Stephen Starring 
completed two passes; one of 18 
yards to Duane Darte/, which set up 
Jordan's three yard smash into the 
left side of the NSU defense with 
1:07 to go that made it a brand new 
game at 7-7. 

If the Demons had any thought of 
upsetting the Cowboys, they were to 
be dashed by hr'iftime as MSU 
racked up 21-sr < jnd quarter points 
to put the contest out of reach. 

Early in the second stanza, 
McClendon slid off left tackle and 
exploded 29 yard to cap a four-play, 
59 yard drive at the 13:20 mark 
which put MSU out in front to stay, 
13-7, as Tony Whittington hooked 
his PAT attempt wide left. 

The score stood that way until the 
Cowboys drove 46 yards afte a shoi' 
Barkley punt late in the half. Mc- 
Clendon darted for 16 yards and 
Jordan bursted for 16 more on a 
pair of carries to set up Starring's 
12 yard touchdown scamper off the 
option. The MSU signal-caller then 
rolled right and waltzed into the end 
zone for a two point conversion, 
giving the Cowboys a 21-7 cushion 
with 3:14 remaining. 

If that wasn't enough to dampen 
spirits of the NSU fans, there was 
more to come. On the second play 
after the ensuing kickoff, Barkley 
threw over the middle for Duper. 

The overthrown ball was tipped 
by Duper, right to safety Carlton 
Briscoe, who returned it to the NSU 

28. Five plays later, bolstered by the 
running of Jordan, MSU went up 
28-7, as the hard-charging tailback 
bounced off three would-be tacklers 
to go the final five yards. 

To show how dominant McNeese 
was in the first half, the Cowboys 
had 18 first downs to five for the 
Demons. In total yards, MSU 
chalked up 280, and NSU had only 

It was hoped that Jordan, Mc- 
Clendon and company would have 
forgotten there was a second half, 
but to NSU's chagrin, they didn't. 

Following a Demon punt, MSU 
proceeded to run the ball down the 
host's throat. Jordan picked up 50 
out of the Cowboys' 58 yards in 
their 10-play drive that increased the 
margin to 35-7. Starring capped the 
march off by going three yards at 

Williams elected to go with 
Powell at the outset of the second 
half in an effort to shake things up 
offensively. And the move paid 
dividends, however, it was too little, 
too late. 

Powell helped the Demons save 
some added embarrassment as he 
whipped a 33-yard scoring pass to 
Wheeler at the 2:02 mark, which 
closed the gap to 35-14. The 
touchdown strike came one play 
following a 16-yard interception 
return by linebacker Gary Reasons. 

The fourth period found Powell 
filling the air with footballs. Only 
LeRoy Ellis; who saw his first action 
since being injured in the Boise State 
game, Sept. 5; rushed the ball (And 
that was for a grand total of two 

When you throw the ball on every 
down, chances are that it will come 
back to haunt you in the long run. 
And it was no exception for Powell 
as Robert Davenport picked one off

Beriod of the NSU— McNeese game Saturday night. MSU's

then high-tailed it for paydirt,

Powell and Duper combined to 
make the score respectable as the 
clock was winding down. After 
Powell was sacked for an eight-yard 
loss on the first play from scrim- 
mage following an MSU fumble at 
their own 25, the pass-happy 
quarterback dropped into the

NLU Drowns NSU 

It wasn't a good day for being 
outside last Friday as a steady, 
driving rain pelted the area. You 
would be foolish to stand out there 
and get soaked, wouldn't you? 

Believe it or not (coming right 
from the music of the Greatest 
American Hero), there were some 
cross country runners churning 
across the soft, muddy course at the 
fish hatchery. 

And when it was all finished, 
Northeast Louisiana grabbed the 
top four places, enroute to a 16-43 
win over NSU. 

NLU's Tommy Dunn sloshed his 
way to the top time of the af- 
ternoon, 25:06. 

For the second consecutive meet 
of the year, freshman Andy Nelson 
led the Demon forces, as he came in 
tilth with a time of 26:29. The other 
freshmen on the squad, Robert 
Dukes, placed seventh, covering the 
course in 26:43. Vic Bradford also 
finished in the top ten, coming in 
with a time of 26:48, good enough 
tor eighth. 

NSU will host Stephen F. Austin, 
l-rulay, at the fish hatchery course.

Three New Porkers To Pick 
This Weeks Porker Pickers 

After vowing last week to quit the 
Porker Pickers at the end of the 
current year, P.P. regular, David 
Stamey set a new personal low for 
himself by going 4-6 on last week's 
games. However, the record was 
still good enough for 
second to last place. 

In a week that saw none of the 
Porker Pickers with seven wins, Dr. 
Ray Baumgardner and Joe Cun- 
ningham were declared the winners 
after posting 6-4 records. In second 
place was Bob Sjoberg and guest 
selector Chari Barron who sported 
5-5 records, followed by Stamey 
with his 4-6 and guest panelists 
Larry Robinson and Gwendolyn 
Arthur who managed 3-7 records. 

Sports Editor Sjoberg was so 
incensed over the performance of 
the panel this week, in particular the 
guests, who had a combined record 
of 11-19, that he immediatly sent 
word for Dr. Baumgardner and- 
asked if he could help find some 
guest selectors who would fit right 
into the Porker Picker panel. 

Dr. Baumgardner came to the 
weekly meeting of the P.P. staff 
with three of his best friends from 
the Biology and Animal Sciences 
departments. The three new guest 
panelist's his week, J. Hamm, Oscar 
Mayer , and Arnold Ziffel, pigged 

out on the hors d'ouvres that were 
catered in, compliments of the NSU 
SGA in appreciation nf thr Porker 
Pickers diligent efforts to bring 
forth continued harmony in NSU 
students by picking the guest 
selectors without regard to race, 
religion, sex, intellect, or family 

Ziffel was very outspoken when 
he demanded that the games for this 
week include all of the A&m 
schools, ( Texas A&m, alabama 
A&m etc. ) Sow-western and of 
course Porkland St. 

However all of the guests ex- 
pressed extreme pleasure at the 
selection of the Texas Longhorn- 
Arkansas Razorback game. 

The only real disagreement came 
when the guest's demanded that the 
Oregon St. game be taken off this 
week's selections. State is coached 
by Hayden Frev. 

After the list of games had been 
agreed upon, and the guest's had 
made their picks, the meeting 
adjourned quickly when Oscar 
Mayer suddenly broke out with the 
Hives and ran for some oinkment. 
Stamey thought he was faking and 
hollered out to him to come back. 
Without breaking stride, Mayer 
looked over his shoulder and yelled, 
"In a pig's eye!" 

Demon Playground 

The Frisbee competition was held last week with Sheila Dowden taking 
the women's division and Eddie McDugle capturing the men's. 

Dowden of the VIP's finished first with 33 points, followed by Elizabeth 
Rosenthal of G.D.I, with 30, and Sherri Brooks of Un Kappa Fifth with 24. 

Conine's McDugle took first with 27 points. Second place went to Frant 
Roccaforte of G.D.I, as he made 25 points. Third place went to Mike Webb 
of Kappa Sigma, Joe Rome of G.D.I., and Mike Brown of Kappa Sigma 
who were all tied with 20 points. 

Flag Football continued this week but between the ran and forfeits only 
one game in the Women's division went into the books. The VIPS romped 
to a 54-0 win over Sigma Kappa, susan Prince scored 22 points for the 
VIP's while Renetta Judice added 18 more to win. 

Chris Moran returned an interception for a touchdown to provide the 
difference in the Univ. of Yang's 19-14 win over the Tasmanian Devils. 
Donny Harrison and Joe Bienvenu each added a TD for Yang. David Ettes 
and Stacy Ward did all the scoring for the Devils. 

The Devils went down to their second close loss of the week against 
Conine 14-8. Paul Day and Eddie McDugle scored for Conine. Conine 
took a easy 34-6 win early in the week as they crushed East Rapides. 
Robinson, Johnson, Nolan, and Choate all had touchdowns in the win. 

A two point conversion by Melvin Lacour was the only difference in the 
Brotherhood's 14-12 win over the Rapides Knights. 

The Kingpins rolled to a 40-6 win over B and W as Parker Thompson 14 
points and Ken and Kip Terrell added six more each. 

James Davis scored 14 points to lead the Jocks to a 36-14 win over the 
Rapides Knights. David Thrash and Jim Oliver each scored eight for the 
winners. John George and Maverick Smothers each scored for the Knights. 

In Fraternity action, Kappa Sigma defeated Phi Beta Sigma 26-12 as 
Dean Napoli threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in the win. 
Mike Brown had 12 points for Kappa Sigma. 

Kappa Alpha took two close wins last week as they defeated TKE 16-8 
and Theta Chi 20-18. Mike Prudhomme and Bob Morgan scored in the first 
win. Philip Ackel passed for two and took one in himself in the second. 

Kappa Sigma no. 2 took a 19-12 win over Sigma Tau Gamma. 
Harrington, McCain, and Mallory all scored once for the Sigs. Richard 
Williamson and Jeff Albrecht scored for Sig Tau. 

Theta Chi beat Omega Psy Phi 19-6. Jay Ham scored seven in the win. 
The Omega's bounced back later in the week to take a 30-12 victory over Sig 
Tau. Karry Taylor lead the Omegas in scoring with 12.

The Christmas Concert, the 
resignation of Social Activitiy 
Director, and State Fair Week were 
the major topics of dis- cussion at 
the Oct. 12 meeting of the SUGB. 

Augie McClendon, gchairman of 
the Concert Committee, announced 
that "pending acceptance" of the 
contract, Atlanta Rhythm Section 
will perform at Prather Coliseum 
on December 5 for the Christmas 
Lights Festival. 

McClendon also presented the 
SUGB members with a slide show of 
the Hall and Oates Concert and a 
list of performers the Concert 
Committee was debating on to 
perform at NSU. 

Future concert consideration is 
being given to: "The Four Tops" 
''Pablo Cruise," "S.O.S."

Some of the bands are totally out of 
reach for the current budget, but 

they are being considered tor the 

McClendon brought up the fact 
that other schools are charging a 
small fee to students for concerts. 
He added that this might be 
something for NSU to look at. 

President Archie Anderson 
announced that Alicia Royer, Social 
Activities Director, has announced 
her resignation from SUGB, due to 
a lack of time to devote to her job. 
An election for a new Social Ac-

Diana Kemp was formally im- 
peached by the Student Government 
Association on charges stemming 
from problems in past elections held 
under Ms. Kemp's administration 
in the office of SGA Commissioner 
of Elections. The impeachment was 
voted on Monday, Oct. 12. 

"I think the bill (to impeach) 
passed not because I'm in- 
competent, but because the SGA is 
curious to know exactly what the 
problems are", said Ms. Kemp in 
her statement to the SAUCE. 

The bill to impeach Ms. Kemp 
was introduced by Senator Russell 
Williams. Williams felt that a 
hearing to look into past elections 
problems could only be ac- 
complished by impeaaching Ms. 

"If the Commissioner of Elec- 
tions has done nothing wrong, then 
through a hearing... all doubt will be 
removed from everybody's mind". 

In the emotion packed meeting, 
several members came to Ms. 
Kemp's defense. Senators Cliff 
Lopez and Harlan Harvey, among 
others, said that they did not feel 

impeachment was the proper avenue 
to conduct a hearing over election 
problems. To the opposition, 
Senator Doug Ireland replied, "I'm 
not condemming Diana, but there 
are serious problems. Let's look at 
them, impeachment is a healthy 

The vote to impeach Ms. Kemp 
was 12 to 2, well over the required 
50 per cent plus one. 

Both Lopez and Harvey voted for 

Exactly what problems and in- 
consistencies was questioned by 
Senator Suzanne Crawford. 

Williams cited as examples the 
Shreveport campuses being allowed 
to vote in the Sept. 16 elections, and 
Ms. Kemp not knowing whether 
ADOS had voted on Oc. 7. 

Ms. Kemp defended herself in the 
Wendy Scrimshaw had first said 
that ADOS had voted, and later the 
same day denied ADOS had voted. 

"She admitted that she had lied 
about voting", said Ms. Kemp. 

Ms. Scrimshaw was present and 
told the SGA that she had retracted 

her statement that ADOS had 
voted. She said, "No votes were 

"I'm not condemming Diana, but 
there are serious problems. Let's 
look at them, impeachment is a 
healthy process", said Doug Ireland 
in answer to the opposition. 

Exactly what problems and in- 
consistencies was brought up by 
Suzanne Crawford. 

In answer, the problems of last 
week's election when reports 
conflicted over how many days 
ADOS voted were cited. 

Ms. Kemp recounted the events of 
last Wednesday, when Wendy 
Scrimshaw, the ADOS president 
first said that ADOS polls were 
opened, and later the same day said 
that the polls had not been opened. 

"She admitted she had lied about 
voting", said Ms. Kemp. 

Ms. Scrimshaw told the SGA that 
her statement was in error, and that 
she had later retracted it, adding 
"No votes were counted". 

The vote to impeach Ms. Kemp 
places her under formal charges to 
be heard at a trial sometime within 
the next two weeks. If convicted of 

any charges, Ms. Kemp would be 
removed from office. 

The SGA members will serve as 
jury, Chief Justice David Martin 
will serve as judge, and David 
Stamey as SGA prosecu . Scrim- 
shaw was questioned by the SAUCE 
on why she made the statement that 
"no votes were counted", if in fact 
no one had voted on Wednesday. 

Ms. Scrimshaw replied "The polls 
were never set up on Wednesday". 

The vote to impeach Ms. Kemps 
places her under formal charges to 
be heard at a trial to be announced 
sometime within the next two 

If convicted of any charges, Ms. 
Kemp would be removed from 

The SGA members will serve as 
the jury in the trial, Chief Justice 
David Martin will serve as Judge, 
and David Stamey as SGA 
Prosecutor. Ms. Kemp's defense 
attorney has not yet been named. 


Treen To Be Honored At NSU Results 

Northwestern State University 
will honor Governor Dave Treenon 
Oct. 26 with an appreciation 
banquet which begins at 7:30 p.m. 
in the Student Union Ballroom on 
the NSU campus. 

The banquet will be highlighted 
by the formal establishment of an 
academic scholarship fund at NSU 
in the name of Gov. Treen's 
mother, Elizabeth Speir Treen of 
Baton Rouge. Mrs. Treen is a 
graduate of NSU. 

Tickets are $8 each for the 
banquet and may be purchased 
through Oct. 23 at the NSU 
Foundation Office in Caldwell Hall 
on the Northwestern campus and at 
the Natchitoches Parish Chamber of 

t ree Speech Alley 

Commerce on Front Street in 
downtown Natchitoches. 

Contributions are also being 
accepted for the Elizabeth Speir 
Treen Scholarship Fund. Donations 
should be mailed to the NSU 
Foundation, Northwestern State 
University, Natchitoches, La. 

During the Monday night 
banquet, Treen will speak on higher 
education in Louisiana. He will also 
discuss plans for the upcoming 
»;.ssion of the Louisiana Legislature. 

University officials said Treen is 
visiting Northwestern to tour the 
university campus and to meet with 
faculty and members and ad- 
ministrators. Treen has expressed an 

interest in gaining first-hand in- 
formation on the problems, 
progress and potential of the 

Ray Carney, director of external 
affairs at NSU and coordinator of 
the banquet honoring the governor, 
said Treen "recognizes that this area 
will soon become one of the fastest- 
growing regions in Louisiana 
because of lignite development, and 
his visit will allow him to study the 
impact of future population growth 
on Northwestern and the entire 

Before arriving at Northwestern 
late Monday afternoon, the 
governor will tour future lignite 
production areas. 

Kemp and Lounge Discussed 

The second Free Speech Alley 
raised a lot of comments and 
tempers, Weds., Ocober 14 at 12:20. 
A little slow in getting started, but 
once rolling the alley had a 
snowballing effect. Two of the main 
issues were the impeachment of 
Dianna Kemp and the proposal of a 
"lounge" at the recreation complex. 

Several students took the stand to 
view their idea's on the SGA boards 
decision to impeach Dianna Kemp. 
The first student was in favor of the 
decision in the view that something 
had to be done to get elections 
running straight. Other students 
took the con-issue saying that 
Dianna was being used as a scape 
goat. It was at this point that 
Dianna took the stand to speak in 
her own defense. Dianna Kemp. I 
have been impeached and I think it's 
totally unfair. No charges were 
brought against me. Nothing was 
said on what I had done or had not 
done," the Commissioner of 
elections said. She went on to tell 
that most students are unaware of 
the situation and those who are 
aware are judging her without 
knowing who Dianna Kemp is. 
"Don't talk about me unless you 
know me and don't talk about the 
issues unless you know about the 
issues, "Ms. Kemp challenged. 

Another issue that brought many 
varied responses was the proposal 
by SGA President Joe Stamey for 
year round use of the NSU 
recreation complex. His ideas 
formatted a "lounge-like setting, 
where students can listen to quiet 
music and maybe have a beer with a 
friend." He stated the idea was not 
for a bar, rather for a relaxed at- 
mosphere that would offer students 
an alternative to the type normally 
employed on the campus. This 
brought several people forward to 
voice objections. The main criticism 
seemed to be of the religious nature. 
These students felt that drinking is 
bad and that for the leaders of the 
campus to propose a drinking at- 
mosphere was not in the best in- 

terest of the students. Rebuttal came 
from a very pro-drinker who stated, 
I'm not shoving down your throat, 
don't shove your views down mine. 
If I want to drink I will." 

Although these two subjects 
generated the most comments, other 
subjects were dsicussed. Among 
these were the lack of spirit at 
footbal game; vandalism that is 
campus wide; and even a soap opera 
fan protested the dominance of 
General Hospital devotees in the 


Also brought under criticism was 
the projection quality of films in 
Kyser auditorium. The film tends to 
reach a dramatic point and the 
words are lost in the gurgle of the 
tape crawling over itself as he 

Free Speech Alley is held Weds, at 
12:00 and goes on until comments 
end. Everyone is invitied to par- 
ticipate or just sit in on some in- 
teresting discussions. 

Election returns are in — again. In 
an election marred by controversy, 
re-elections and the impeachmen of 
the Commissioner of Elections, the 
SGA has announced winners in the 
Oct. 8 senatorial race. It was the 
second election of the semester for 
the senators position. 

The first election was considered 
invalid when it was discovered 
Constitutional procedures had not 
been strictly followed. Because of 
the discrepency, proceedings are 
being brought against Com- 
missioner of elections Dianna 

Elected to senior senator 
positions are Dean Napoli and Vicki 
Lewis. Napoli is a business ad- 
ministrations major, a member of 
the Demon baseball team and a 
member of Kappa Sigma fraternity. 
Miss Lewis is a member of Alpha 
Lambda Delta and Purple Jackets. 

The junior election returns 
restated one previous winner and 
ousted another. Elected were Any 
Nell Padgett and Don Stacy. In the 
September election, Robin Price 
won on the first ballot but failed to 
win in the most recent election. 

Teresa Peterson and Deana Grau 
were chosen to represent the 
Sophomore class. A run off was to 
be held between Deana and Mitzy 
Lindsey, but Miss Lindsey withdrew 
from the run-off, leaving Miss Grau 
the apparent winner. A special 
senatorial meeting will be held to 
approve Miss Grau's appointment. 

Bridget Jones and Scott Repp 
were elected as Freshmen senators. 
Again, this decision ejected the 
previous winner Bob Cleveland 
from office. -

Guest Editorial 

Abortion Is Murder 

One side says "Abortion is 
murder," and the other says "A 
Woman has the right to control her 
body." The conflict concerning 
abortion is full of euphemisms used 
to camouflage the offensiveness and 
the absurdity of the arguments 
being so thoughtlessly used for 
abortion. There is an obivous 
injustice within our system con- 
cerning abortion, in both the double 
standards of society and the 
criminal justice system of our land. 
I am going to mention briefly some 
of these euphemism and some of 
these injustices, however, my main 
purpose is to show the complete lack 
of logic in the arguments for 

Let's begin with euphemisms, 
"The use of a less direct word or 
phrase for one considered of- 
fensive," which is the definition 
given by Webster's New World 
Dictionary. George Orwell,, in his 
essay "Politics and the English 
Language," gives a good example 
of a euphemism: "Defenseless 
villagers are bombarded from the 
air, the inhabitants driven out into 
the countryside, the cattle machine- 
gunned down, the huts set on fire 
with incendiary bullets: this is 
called pacification." 

Theology Professor Paul Ramsey 
of Princeton University, has rightly 
said that "Ordinary language is the 
language to use in moral and 
political discourse." In his essay 
whose title asks "Washington 
Knows...?" Professor Ramsey used 
an example that I have borrowed to 
show how euphemisms are used to 
either soften the offensiveness of 
abortion or to keep us "lay-people" 
in the dark. In St. Luke's Gospel it 
is recorded that, "Mary arose in 
those days and went into the hill 
country with haste, into a city of 
Judea; and entered into the house of 
Zacharias, and saluted Elizabeth. 
'Hi Liz,' she said; 'I am with em- 
bryo.' and Elizabeth responded, 
'Hail Mary; didn't you know? I'm 
carrying a fetus. ..Lo, as soon as the 
voice of thy salutation sounded in 
mine ears, the fetus-person leaped in 
my support system for joy.' 
Obviously this is somewhat revised, 
however, euphemisms like these are 
in reality a new form of hypocrisy. 

Professor Ramsey examined 
terms like, "products of 
pregnancy" which means a child 
born defective; or "interrupt the 
pregnancy" which for our mothers 
meant saving a life by C-section. but 
now means taking a life by abor- 
tion; or "reproductive freedom" 
which also means abortion. Ob- 
viously the biggest euphemism is 
"abortion on demand" which really 
means murder on call. 

Concerning the injustices of the 
abortion conflict the first injustice 
by the government was on 22 
January 1973 when the U.S. 
Supreme Court in the case of Roe vs 
Wade nullified all criminal abortion 
statutes in the 50 states and 
produced what is now called 
"abortion on demand." 

This in turn has produced what 
seems like an injustice to the child- 
abusing parent. Obviously there is 
no rational logic to this example, 
however, the child abuser is arrested 

for battering his child which in his 
mind is justifiable because the lady 
next door had recently returned 
from the hospital where she had not 
just abused her child but killed the 
baby, and legally too. 

President Reagan, in a March 6, 
news conference gave an example of 
the injustice of abortion when he 
was quoted in the March 7, New 
York Times as saying, "It seems 
strange to me that we have a law, 
for example in California, a law tha 
says that if someone abuses or 
mistreats a pregnant woman to the 
point of causing the death of her 
unborn child, that individual will be 
tried for murder." The injustice of 
it all is that California, of course, 
has its share of legal abortion clinics 
to cause the death of unborn 

In the September '79, issue of the 
American Journal of Public Health 
it was reported that an initial 
decision by the Department of 
Health, Education, and Welfare in 
August '77, restricted funds for 
abortion to procedures necessary to 
save a woman's life. Later, on 14 
February 1978, H.E.W. broadened 
their decision to include "severe and 
long-lasting physical health 
damage" to the woman if she were 
to have the baby. Also included 
were pregnancies resulting from 
statutory or forcible rape, and 
incest, if the assault was reported to 
a law enforcement agency or 
government health service within 60 
days of the incident. Once again the 
system of justice is challenged when 
the government has determined for 
us, that government can cure the 
aggravation of rape by legalizing 
another felony and committing 

Then there is the social injustice. 
There always has been and probably 
always will be a double standard 
against the woman which lets her 
male partner get off almost guilt- 

This brings us now to the 
arguments in the abortion conflict. 
Perhaps the major argument is over 
the status of the fetus, which is 
Latin for "young one" or "off- 
spring," whether or not the fetus is 
a person or not. The abortionist 
tries to dismiss the charge of murder 
by saying the fetus cannot be proven 
to be a person. Of course the 
abortionist also fails to prove the 
fetus not to be a person. 

Physiologically speaking, "your 
heart began beating at three weeks, 
your brain waves could have been 
recorded after 40 days, and 
fingerprints which gave you a 
separate legal identity" were formed 
in the 3rd month of your life. These 
facts were compiled by Gary Bergel 
in his essay "Abortion in Amierica" 
which was advised by several 
doctors, one of whom I will refer to 
later, and a bibliography to long to 

The abortionist chooses birth as 
the deciding factor for being a 
person. Of course, here again, the 
abortionist fails to show a dif- 
ference between a premature infant 
birth and an infant still in the womb 
at the same stage of pregnancy. 
This kind of thinking causes one to 
ask questions about multiple births 

like twins and triplets. While one of 
the twins is born, is it right to kill 
the other twin still in the womb, 
simply because the parents only 
plannned for one child? What kind 
of life is the fetus if it is not a 
person; is it animal or plant life? 
Why does the fertilized egg grow 
and the unfertilized egg does not? 

Another argument used by the 
abortionist is that the fetus is not 
self-sufficient and is totally 
dependent on its mother (excuse me, 
I mean fetus support system) for 
nurture and therefore is without 
rights. University of Notre Dame 
Philosopher, James P. Sterba, has 
siad that this argument means, 
"what a person's right to life ex- 
plicitly entitles him to is not the 
right to receive or acquire the means 
of survival, but only the right not to 
be killed or let die unjustly." 
Besides the fact that the major 
purpose of the mother is to nurture 
her own offspring, what also can be 
concluded about the fetus being 
dependent and therefore without 
rights is said by Richard Smith, 
author of an essay entitled "A 
Secular Case Against Abortion on 
Demand:" "If to be human is to 
have rights, and if to be dependent 
is to have no righs, then nothing 
which is dependent can be con- 
sidered human." 

At the beginning of my essay I 
offered 2 of the most popular 
arguments concerning abortio . One 
was that some people say the fetus is 
part of the woman's body and the 
woman has a right to total control 
over her own body. Let me ask you 
a question here about your bodies. 
How do you pay your taxes? Think 
about it. How do you yield the 
right-of-way? Not even the 
Amazing Kreskin can pay his taxes 
with ESP. He had to sit down and 
physically with his limbs fill out the 
1040 form just like a woman does. I 
think now you can begin to see the 
absurdity of the argument. Does a 
woman's control over her body 
exempt her from physically filing 
her income tax report? Any 
abortionist that supports the social 
welfare of people everywhere, must 
see thatthis argument implies that 
providing for the basic needs of the 
fetus means providing people's 
basic needs is no longer a social 
requirement, as they like to claim, 
but instead as Sterba concluded in 
his essay "Abortion, Distant 
Peoples, and Future Generations" 
it has become only "moral 

The serious fact of the matter is 
that the law does protect the 
woman's body from assault, take 
for instance the example President 
Reagan gave referring to California. 
A pregnant woman left alone and 
not assaulted gives birth. A 
pregnant woman assaulted by an 
abortionist kills life. The law does 
not allow a doctor to mutilate or 
assault a woman's body. A doctor 
that amputates a woman's leg on 
demand, without medical necessity 
can be held liable and sued. If the 
fetus therefore is part of the 
woman's body then the abortionist 
has no legal right to mutilate or 
assault it on demand. 

Another objection the abortionist 
offers is that unwanted children will 

Broomhilda Haunts Campus Media 
Makes Clean Sweep of Tech Game 

Earlier this week you received a 
letter from Broomhilda The Witch. 
By this weekend the campus will be 
covered with signs (small though 
they may be) saying "Broomhilda 
loves the Demon" and urging 
students to help her by lighting a red 
candle. Let me give you the facts. 
But first let me put this damned 
magic marker down before I use a 
ream of paper on a two or three 
page letter!! 

Broomhilda heard about the 
KNWD Radiothon last week. She 
flew by on her broomstick to check 
out the men. She had just gotten her 
17th divorce (one died before the 
divorce was final( however) and she 
looking for a likely prospect for 
her 18th hosband. 

She liked Curt Boudreaux and 
was going to snatch him off the top 
of the column. But before that 
could happen, she stopped by the 
stadium for a couple of beers and a 

Those of you familiar with 
Broomhilda will recall her social 
graces do not get her any invitations 
to Debuntante Balls. 

While at the stadium, Broomhilda 

was seduced by an errant Bulldog of 
doubious ancestry, g of a sucker for 
dogs (he reminded her of three of 
her husbands) she made certain 
promises in the heat of passion. 

Specifically, the Bulldog made 
her place a hex on the Demon 
Football team. The cowardly cur 
was a cad, however, and dumped 
poor Broomsie. She stayed around 
Saturday night to watch the game 
sitting stop the big "N". 

While there she spied the love of 
her life and the man who she wants 
to become her 18th husband, the 
NSU Demon Mascot. 

As of ihursday mgtit, she had 
written two semi-passionate love 
letters to the Demon. She, of 
course, cannot expect the Demon to 
reciprocate her love while the hex 
still affects the Football team. 

Furthermore, she is powerless to 
remove the hex. Only the Demon 
fans can do that. 

Broomhilda says that the hex can 
be broken if next week all Demon 
fans will light a red candle. 

It is also important that the 
Demon fans each burn a red candle 
at the game in Shreveport. 

be abused and should therefore be 
aborted. Evidence is now beginning 
to show what some call the "abort 
and batter" syndrome. Shortly after 
the January '73, decision of the 
Supreme Court, figures on child 
abuse began to rise — not drop. 
According to Dr. Philip G. Ney, 
Head of the Department of 
Psychiatry, Royal Jubilee Hospital, 
in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, in 1974 
there were 22,683 battered children 
in New York, and in 1975 the 
figures rose by almost 4,000 to 
26,536. Another doctor, C. Everett 
Koop, Deputy Assistant Secretary 
of the Department of Health and 
Social Services, appointed by 
President Reagan to be U.S. 
Surgeon General, revealed in the 
1980 essay "Abortion in America," 
that since the 1973 decision child 
abuse has increased — not 
jiecreased, by nearly 400% ! 

Also, to say that an unwanted 
pregnancy is equal to an unwanted 
child seems to ignore the fact that 
the criminal justice system has yet to 
figure out how to deal with the 
traffic of baby sales in the U.S. 
reportedly brought on because the 
government has made it next to 
impossible with their bureaucratic 
red tape required to adopt wanted 
children from adoption agencies. 

Probably the most illogical of all 
the arguments for killing unborn 
children is similar to the one that 
unwanted children may be battered 
therefore should be aborted, and it 
is also very similar to arguments for 
euthanasia. The argument attempts 
to show that killing the fetus, which 
the abortionist claims is not a 
person, is justifiable if the fetus will 
not be able to lead a good life. If the 
fetus is considered not a person, 
then is it not somewhat absurd to 
compare a person's future life 
existence with his present non- 
existence? In other words, as Sterba 
clarifies this, "the person's life 
cannot be compared with his non- 
existence unless that person already 

In conclusion, concerning 
euphenisms in the abortion conflict, 
to get rid of people who are 
physically or mentally defective or 
to believe there is human life not 
worthy to be allowed to live can be 
described as Representative Henry 
J. Hyde of Illinois would say, 

Concerning the injustices of 
government involvement allowing 
abortion on demand, Kenneth 
Cauthen in the July 1-8, '81 issue of 
"The Christian Century" writes, 
"Freedom of choice is not a moral 
option for the state to choose if 
indeed the embryo or fetus is 
regarded as an 'unborn child.' Only 
if the full personhood of the 
developing fetus can be denied on 
responsible moral grounds can the 
freedom-of-choice option arise as a 
fully defensible social policy." And 
almost like a prophet, Professor 
Ramsey writes, "If Washington 
Knows what to do for us, 
Washington Knows what to do to 

As for the arguments, they are 
endless and without any sound logic 
in the case for abortion on demand 
or murder on call.

Broomhilda is not unselfish in 
this. If the fans light the candles, the 
hex will be broken, NSU will beat 
Tech, and Broomhilda can have 
her man, the Demon Mascot. 

If the fans will get out and 
support this with burning candles, 
Broomhilda will come to the game

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

... The Word is State Fair 

With apologies to Doug Ireland, ...Thoughts while wondering what in the 
world those 10 boys were doing down at Melrose Plantation with shotguns 
hunting for ghosts... 

...A word to the wise.... the sheriff wants everyone to know that there are 
positively no ghosts on Melrose or any other plantation in Natchitoches 
Parish. Not only that, but ifthingslike shooting off shotguns in the wee 
hours of the morning continue, the people who live around the plantations 
might not be as cordial in dealing with the ghost hunters as the sherriff's 
deputies were in dealing with the 10 boys ( all NSU students) who got 

And now for some real stuff... It is State Fair Week for all NSU Demons, 
time when everyone forgets about all else save that football game with those 
dreaded and despicable 'Dogs from Ruston. 

Most every merciful teacher at Northwestern has avoded scheduling tests 
for this week, except for the one or two who obviously weren't thinking 
very well when they scheduled tests for Friday. 

In this week's issue of the Current Sauce, there appears a letter from a 
certain BroomHilda wh descri bes herself in many different ways. But one 
things that she is consistent on is the fact that she has put a hex on the 
Demon football team and that the only way that the hex can be broken is 
for every NSU student to bring a red candle to the State Fair Game and light 
it up. 

Now that's not a bad idea. Certainly it would be mind boggling for the 
peole on the Tech side to look up in their half-dazed way and see 5,000 red 
candles burning amidst an orange and purple background. 

That certainly would be one way for the peole at Northwestern to prove 
that they aren't as apathetic and listless as they are made out to be. 

Another thing about this game is that immediatly after the game is over, 
the mayor of Ruston and Nathitoches' mayor, Joe Sampite will meet at 
midfield to carry out their yearly bet. 

It seems that the two honorable men have so much confidence in their 
respective teams that each on . bets the other a shoeshine at midfield that 
his team will win the game. 

In last year's ignaugeral bet, Sampite of course lost, but there are plenty 

of us here now, who wouldn't bet against Sampite's winning the bet this 
time around. 

And just a couple of more things before your get away to Shreveport this 
weekend, when you get to the game, try to find a red candle, if you can't 
find a candle, then find your voice and show some support for the Demons. 

Second, this weekend's for you, make the most of it. 

Thoughts while remembering how 
nice it was to have Monday off after 
the State Fair Classic in 1979... 

...While there certainly are more 
important things going on now 
relative to the future of the 
university, such as the selection of a 
new president, there is nothing 
happening that demands the at- 
tention like the upcoming State Fair 
Classic pitting the Demons against 
the Tech Bulldogs. 

There certainly is no reason to 
even attempt to discuss anything 
else but Saturday night's battle in 
Shreveport's Independence 
Stadium. If you did try not to talk 
about the game, chances are that 
nobody would listen. 

Listen up, then. 

More than any other year in 
recent memory, this season's game

could mark a pivotal point in the 
football fortunes of both Nor- 
thwestern and Tech. While neither 
team sports a winning record, a win 
Saturday night could be a catalyst 
for a revival of sorts. A loss could 
have disasterous consequences. 

Northwestern, after last year's 8-3 
record, seemed this year to have a 
chance to return to the glory days of 
the mid-1960s when a winning 
season was a bygone conclusion and 
a victory over Tech was expected. 
By the same reasoning, a losing 
season in 1981 would seem to in- 
dicate that last year's good fortune 
was a fluke. 

In short, a good season this year 
for NSU would demonstrate that 
the hurdle has been cleared and that 
the Demon football program is back 
where it belongs. 

Of course, lere are those among 
the alumni w:> are getting used to 
losing recordsnd consider any year 
a success thaincludes a victory at 
the State FairBy that yardstick, it 
has been a lor while since NSU has 
put two succeful seasons back-to- 
back; and on one time since 1970 
have the Dnons pleased that 
segment of thjlumni. 

It has becoc of such importance 
to win the Sta Fair game that there 
are those wou will tell you that the 
1979 NSU wi gave A.L. Williams 
some job secu:y and sealed the fate 
of Tech coacrLarry Beightol, who 
was fired ne the end of that 
season, his firan Ruston. 

This year'scontest could have 
similar impact 

Tech coac Billy Brewer is 
fighting, on a ightly smaller scale. 

the same kinds of internal problems 
that plagued the Bulldogs in 1979 
and eventually led to Beightol's 
demise. Tech's crushing 35-0 
Homecoming loss to Northeast put 
even more than the ordinary em- 
phasis on beating Northwestern. 

There is talk at high levels that 
heads could roll in Ruston after a 
Demon win. 

And here in Natchitoches, still 
there are questions about the 
stability of the NSU program. A 
loss to Tech would increase the 
intensity of those questions. 

There will be much more riding 
on Saturday's game than the banner 
which hangs in the Student Union of 
the victorious university. 

This year's State Fair Classic is a 
"must win game" for both teams. 

i was sitting home the other night, 
watching "Gallagher, Mad As 
Hell," and he was delivering a talk 
on what makes him mad. Well, that 
kind of put me in the mood to get 
something, or even a combination 
of somethings off my chest. 

First of all, I mad that the 
students at Northwestern who don't 
give a rat's left foot about what's 
going on here. Here we have an 
election on an amendment that 
would stop ADOS and Warrington 
from voting in our executive 
elections, and we can't even get 
enough voter turnout to win that 

Now we are going to have the 
people at the ADOS and Warr- 
ington campus elect our officials, 
and we don't get to elect theirs. 

Something else that makes me 

mad is that when it came tim e to 
publish the results of those elec- 
tions, the votes had not been posted 
and the person in charge was 
nowhere around to help with 

Coinciding with the troubles in 
the elections process, I'm mad at 
Wendy Scrimshaw for leveling the 
blame on everybody but herself. 
She's the president at ADOS and 
she should certainly know what's 
going on, but apparently doesn't. 

Somthing else that makes me mad 
is that we have an SGA senator who 
is also a football player, who never 
has time to attend the SGA meetings 
on Monday nights. There is cer- 
tainly nothing wrong with being a 
football player, I admire the guts it 
takes, and there is certainly nothing 
wrong with being an SGA senator, 
at this campus that orobablv takes 

more guts, b there is something 
wrong when aenator cannot get to 
a single meeig. That person is 
obviously notoing the job that he 
swore to do. 

Another thi; that makes me mad 
is that durin{holidays, when the 
Northwestern udent has plenty of 
time to do rearch on his hated 
term paper, tl Watson Library is 
closed. Or wh studying goes on 
into the nightit say, 11:00, time's 
up, and we got) go home. 

And finally Me thing that makes 
me the madGt, is NSU's jour- 
nalism departrnt. Here we have a 
college newspaer that is being run 
by people wit absolutely no real 
journalistic exjrience. 

Oh yea, surevve have a couple of 
Business majs, a Psychology 
major, two badcasting majors 
and one gi who's already 

graduated from a college in Min- 

Why doesn't the journalism 
department produce anybody to 
work on the Sauce? There are never 
more than six people who are down 
at the Natchitoches Times putting 
the Sauce togetho r on Monday 

Goodness knows we need help. 
Do you want to help us? We will 
take anybody. We give no thought 
to race, religion, sex, or anything 
else. We just want people. 

You know what else makes me 
mad. When these people find out 
that they will be doing volunteer, or 
that is to say, free, work, then they 
won't zant to help. 

We realize that the Current Sauce 
is not a first-rate quality newspaper, 
but don't blame us, we just work 

David Stamey's Amazin' PointZ' 

The Student Supreme Court 
invalidated the recent impeachment 
of Diana Kemp Monday afternoon 
because of two reasons. The first 
was the Student Supreme Court 
Chief Justice was not presiding at 
the impeachment proceeding, as so 
stipulated in the Constitution. The 
second was no charges were passed 
in the resolution of impeachment. 

Here is the opinion of the Court 
that was released Monday. 

The Court was petitioned By J. 
Kevin Bartolomew, SGA Vice 
President, to clarify Article 1, 
Section 3 of the NSU Student 
Government Association Con- 
stitution. Specifically, Bar- 
tholomew asked: 1) for an ex- 
planation as to what aspect of the 
removal process the Chief Justice of 
the Student Supreme Court is to 
preside over; and 2) should the 

Student Senate, which brings the 
charge of impeachment, be allowed 
to serve as the jury which will sit for 
the purpose of reviewing the charge. 

Let it be understood that removal 
is a two-step process. First, during 
the impeachment proceeding the 
accused is formally charged with a 
specific crime or misdemeanor. 
Subsequently, the removal 
proceeding serves as the actual trial 
before the Senate. Only if judged 
guilty during the removal 
proceeding can the accused by 
removed from office. The Chief 
Justice of the Student Supreme 
Court shall preside at the im- 
peachment proceeding and at the 
removal proceeding. 

In regard to the second question, 
the constitution clearly states that 
the Student Senate shall have the 
sole right of impeachment and 

removal. Thiss to say that the 
Senate will brii charges during the 
impeachment oceeding and the 
Senate will sit ;the jury during the 
removal procding. So, the 
Senate — in accdance with current 
conditions — shtld rightfully bring 
charges and sec as the jury during 
impeachmen and removal 

However, irorder to achieve a 
more unbiasecimpeachment and 
removal procs, the Student 
Supreme Cat unanimously 
recommends th a body other than 
the Senate ser as a jury during 
removal proceengs. 

The final iragraph of the 
opinion does it make the senate 
take action anc'ind a new jury, it 
only recommeis that the senate 
look into othepossibilities for a 
jury. That acth is taken because 

Letter To The Hit or 


The proposed impeachment of 
Miss Kemp as Commissioner of 
Elections is considered a very 
serious issue. The SGA Senate, by 
passing this proposal and beginning 
the impeachment process, have 
stepped into a ground never touched 
before at Northwestern. Mr. 
William's motion to impeach and 
remove Miss Kemp from office was 
based on his question of finding out 
what the problem is with our 
election process. He did not state 
any specific charges against her and 
repeatedly explained at the meeting 
that it should be looked into, then 
the SGA Senate has ignored the 
proper steps to be taken in removing 
an officer from office. 

First, impeachment is not an 
avenue to look into a problem. 
Impeachment is to bring formal 
charges against Ms. Kemp. Second, 
the SGA Senate rules, adopted by 
the Senate, state that the 
Parliamentary Procedure to used 
is Robert's Rules of Order. 
Robert's Rules states, "the basic 
steps which make up the elements of 
fair disciplinary process should be 
understood. Any special procedures 
established should be built essen- 
tially around them, and the steps 
should be followed in the absence of 

such provisions." These steps are 1) 
an investigating committee should 
be selected from the body to form 
an opinion. 2) "If the committee's 
opinion is in favor of the accused, 
then they should pepare a resolution 
exonerating him. 3) But if the 
committee from its investigations 
finds substance to the rumors and 
cannot resolve the matter 
satisfactorily in any other way, it 
should make a report in writing 
outlining the course of its in- 
vestigation and preferring charges." 
After this has been completed, then 
and only then can the Senate 
recommend or propose that any 
officer be impeached and removed 
from office. 

In closing, I would like to say to 
the Senate that it has disgraced itself 
and the student body, by not 
educating themselves of the proper 
procedures to be followed in such a 
serious matter. The President of 
SGA should realize this and return 
the bill to the Senate for recon- 
sideration. If this is not done, then 
the Senate shall have done an in- 
justice to Ms. Kemp, itself, and the 
student body. 

Sincerely and respectfully, 

Archie A. Anderson

What Problems 

Diana Kemp, Commissioner of 
Elections, was formally impeached 
by the SGA because of problems 
and inconsistencies that have oc- 
curred in past elections. The 
hearing, which has not yet been 
announced, will hear problems 
stemming from the elections to 
determine if Ms. Kemp was per- 
sonally responsable for any errors. 

It is not known what elections will 
be discussed in the hearing. Four 
major elections have been contested 
and ruled on by the Student 
Supreme Court. It is expected that 
those elections will be reviewed. 

The landmark court decision to 
exclude ADOS and WCC campuses 
from voting in SUGB and SGA 
elections, with the exception of 
Honor courts and SGA President, 
was made in March. 

The ruling was made after the 
SUGB petioned the court to exclude 
the Shreveport campuses from 
voting in SUGB elections as they 
paid no Student Union Governing 
Board fees. 

The court called the case of the 
SGA elections on it's own, even 
though ADOS and WCC pay 
Student Government fees. 

Alleged election discrepancies 
brought the Mar. 26 election back to 

the court, when Larry Hall con- 
tested election proceedures in the 
office of Treasurer. 

Hall had been announced as the 
unofficial winner of the election in 
the office of Treasurer. A mistake 
in placing the proper votes by the 
correct candidate reversed the 

Max Ates was declared the of- 
ficial winner, ousting Hall. 

The court decided not to overturn 
the election. It agreed that voter 
irregularities could have occurred, 
but said that none were proven, and 
no intent of discrimination was 

Hall had based part of his defense 
on the claim of intent to 
discriminate against him. 

The controversial issue of seven 
un-accounted for tallies, in that 
election played a major role in the 

The Election Commission had a 
system of checks and balances to 
insure proper voting proceedures. 
When a student came to register, his 
name was checked off an Alpha 
listing of all eligible voters. 

The voter then signed his name on 
the signature list, and the system 
said that both lists should match up. 

In this election, there were seven

Scholarship Bank 

Never before has it become so 
urgent for students to investigate 
alternatives to federally funded 
student aid programs, according to 
Steve Danz, Director of The 
Scholarship Bank. 

Now that "Reagonomics" is the 
law of the land, students can expect 
to see reduced or completely 
eliminate federal programs. This 
will make it mandatory to seek out 
private programs, such as those 
offered by private foundations, 
civic groups and trade 

The Scholarship Bank will send 
students in need of financial aid a 
questionnaire in which the student 
answers a number of questions 
concerning interests, major, oc- 

cupational goals, and financial 
need. The Scholarship Bank then 
sends the student a print-out of all 
available aid sources. According to 
the director, the average student is 
receiving over 45 different aid 
sources. The information is up- 
dated daily and currently has in 
excess of 25,000 funding sources, 
making it the only service in which 
to find al available aid, including 
grants, loans, scholarships and 
work opportunities, for high school, 
undergrad and graduate students. 

Students wishing to use the 
service (there is a modest fee) should

Ms. Williams said, "Sometimes a 
person will come and we'll check his 
name off and he'll say that he has to 
go to class. Sometimes they come 
back, and sometimes they don't." 

The court ruled the election code 
unconstitutional regang contesting 
an election within 48 hours of the 
announcement of the winners. 

The winners are not officially 
announced until the Senate ap- 
proves the results. 

The court also recommended that 
a new system of checks and balances 
be used. 

The Sept. 16 elections brought 
about one of the largest controversy 
when the SGA discovered that the 
elections were held in direct 
violation of the court's March 

Senators Cliff Lopez and David 
LaVere petitioned the court to rule 
on the election, as ADOS and WCC 
had voted for SGA Senators. 

The question of why the elections 
were held in contradiction to the 
ruling was not at issue. In fact, in 
the SGA presentation, given by 
David Stamey, the court was asked 
not to lay blame on any person or 

"The court has ruled on three 
elections, elections seem to be a 

problem. This is the second time the 
court has had to rule on the exact 
same issues. It is ridiculous that the 
whole thing happened in the first 
place", said Martin. 

Martin announced the court 
opinion to subtract the ADOS and 
WCC campus votes from the Sept, 
16 senatorial election. The March 
decision was again repeated. 

The case was complicated by the 
fact that some senators declared the 
official winners had been sworn in. 

The court addressed this problem 
by stating "the court realizes that 
some candidates declared winners or 
placed the run-offs may no longer 
be eligible to hold the position... and 
new run-offs may develop... The 
Supreme Court cannot allow 
someone to represent the 
students... if they were not elected 
by a majority of those students...". 

The results were changed. There 
were more checks than names. 

Vicki Williams, who acted as 
Commissioner of Elections on that 
day, as Ms. Kemp had run for that 
office, explained the problem. (Ms. 
Kemp had been appointed to the 
office of Commissioner of Elections 
after the previous Commissioner 
resigned. On Mar. 26 she was 
elected to that office)

You need energy 
to get a job! 

Industry and business need customers to 
buy the products they make. They also need 
energy to produce those products. In order to 
supply the needed energy, utility companies 
must take advantage of the most up-to-date 
technology and make full use of every 
available energy source including nuclear 
power and coal. The failure to utilize these 
two sources of energy along with others 
available could seriously jeopardize the 
industrial and economic growth of our entire

Roe Speaks at NSU 

Evelyn Roe, news editor of the 
Natchitoches Times and a former 
employee of KWKH Radio in 
Shreveport, spoke to several Mass 
Communication majors last 
Thursday about newspaper writing 
and the work involved in producing 
a local, community newspaper. 

Roe, who has been employed at 
the Times for some 18 years, started 
as a typist and worked her way up 
to News Editor. She stated that 
newspaper reporters need a great 
deal of curiosity to be successful. 

"You've got to have initiative and 
be a self-starter," she said. 
"Newspaper writers need to give it 
'spunk'. The newspaper writer 
needs to be aggressive and has to go 
out and talk to people. In effect, 
they almost have to be a little 

She also stated that writers need a 
broad educational background and 
at least an informal knowledge of 
everything. She believes the average 
writer needs to read from comic 
books on up. 

"The Natchitoches Times is 
simply a community newspaper, 
and its primary goal is to put out 
information to the local people in 
the parish," she explained. "The 
Times informs the consumer, which 
is necessary to this community.They 
know exactly where they can get 
things for the best price, and many 
other things. 

"In a nutshell, it informs 
everyone of what everybody else is 
doing," she added. 

The veteran journalist also says 
the public in the Natchitoches 
community is interested in raw 
news, such as a car wreck, burglary, 
trial, etc... 

Unlike radio and television as 
well, the newspaper is a bit more 
complex, she said. 

"It's terrible if you don't feel that 
you are serving the community and 
society," Roe concluded. "If you 
feel like that, then journalism is not 
the job for you."

Chi Alpha 

Chi Alpha recently sponsored two 
films in the Keyser Auditorium. 
These films showed the events that 
are to take place in the tribulation 
period, after the second coming of 
Jesus Christ. On Monday, Sep- 
tember 21, over 200 students at- 
tended the film "A Distant 
Thunder." Approximately 30 
people accepted Christ as their 
savior, afterwards. On Tuesday, 
September 22, at the film "Image of 
the Beast," there was about 350 
people in attendance, and ap- 
proximately 40 people experienced a 
personal relationship with Jesus 

Chi Alpha also sponsored "Rock 
Music Revealed" presented by Mike 
Johnson of Dallas, Texas. "Rock 
Music Revealed" was an intensive 
document study on various rock 
groups; the music they play, and the 
lyrics they sing. Mike Johnson 
played examples of "backward 
masking," a technique used to get 
to the sub-conscious. He uncovered 
evidence to show that some groups 
are attempting— through their 
music~to destroy the morals of 
youth, and even to encourage the 
worship of Satan. 

Chi Alpha has more in store for 
Northwestern and wants everyone 
to feel free to be a part of it. They 
meet every Monday night at 8:00

Demons, Bulldogs Battle It Out In State Fair Contest 

Saturday, one of the oldest and 
rapidly becoming one of most 
exciting college football rivalries in 
Louisiana is renewed when Nor- 
thwestern faces Louisiana Tech at 
Independence Stadium in 

The series between the two 
schools has increased to the point 
that over 35,000 fans turned out to 
view last year's contest which takes 
place annually in-conjunction with 
the Louisiana State Fair. 

"Up until two years ago, we have 
gotten beat pretty bad," coach A.L. 
Williams stated. "But recently this 
has turned out to be a heck of a 

And if the past two games is an 
indication of what is to follow, fans 
should be in for a real treat. 

In 1979, a Kenny Philibert to 
Randy Liles touchdown pass capped 
off a 15-play, 94-yard drive with 
time running out gave the Demons a 
25-21 win. However, it was Tech's 
turn to strike back in 1980 as they 
came from behind to dump NSU 27- 
23. George Yates rambled 20 yards 
to give the Bulldogs the victory, 
only a couple of minutes after Eric 
Barkley and Victor Oatis combined 
on a 80 yard bomb which pulled the 
Demons ahead. 

If you like to see a passing game, 
you'll enjoy this matchup. Matt 
Dunnigan will be the trigger of the 
LTU offense. The 5-10, 185 pound 
junior threw for 1939 yards in 1980, 
and led his squad in last year's State 
Fair clash. Dunnigan has been 
plagued by injuries in 1981, but 

should be at full strength Saturday. 

What makes or breaks a quar- 
terback? His receivers, of course. 
And Dunnigan has plenty of them. 
One is Johnny Giordano, a 5-1 1 165 
pound senior, who was a second 
team All-Southland Conference 
performer. He was the Bulldog's 
second leading receiver in 1980 with 
27 catches for 459 yards and three 

Freddie Brown (5-11, 170 pound 
junior) is the deep threat, as he 
caught 22 passes for 464 yards and 
one score. An interesting note is that 
the best performance of his college 
career came against Northwestern 
last season when he caught seven 
passes for 97 yards, including a 25- 
yard touchdown. Look for Dun- 

nigan to go to "Downtown Fred- 
die" again this year. 

One major factor in the game 
rests on the availability of Leland 
Padgett. The 5-7, 160 pound senior 
from Lafayette has been out with an 
injury but may play against the 
Demons. Padgett was the top 
Bulldog receiver in 1980, latching on 
to 34 passes for 547 yards and two 

Tailback Earl Greer and fullback 
Steve Hartley round out the LTU 
backfield. Greer was top rusher in 
1980 with 517 yards. 

AH-SLC players Andre Young 
and Lyn Bankston spearhead the 
Tech defense. Young has been 
shifted to safety this season, after a 
standout season at linebacker, and 
will team with Bankston in the 

defensive backfield. Bankston was 
sixth in tackles and tied for first in 
team interception with four. 

Mike Nickel anchors the 
defensive front. The 6-2, 220 pound 
tackle had 59 tackles last season. 

The Bulldogs will need good play 
from their pass rushers and 
defensive backs to stop the Demon 
offensive thrust. 

It looks like it will be Eric Barkley 
calling the signals. Bobby Hebert 
has not practiced, and will not play. 

Barlkey will hope to bounce back 
from a poor performance in the 
McNeese State game. Stan Powell, 
who had a fine game in a reserve 
role against McNeese, will be 
waiting in the wings once again. 
Powell threw for 270 yards and two 
scores against the Cowboys. There 

is some good news for the Demon 
offense as running back LeRoy Ellis 
is making good progress coming 
back from the injury he received 
Sept. 5, and should see extensive 

Due to the loss of defensive back 
Arthur B. Lewis because of a wrist 
injury, Williams was forced to shift 
freshman Charles Fulton, who was 
a running back, to cornerback, and 
linebacker Mike Camden is 
doubtful due to a knee injury, and 
may not play anymore this season. 

This year's State Fair game 
should be turned into an aerial 
circus if Dunnigan, Giordano, 
Brown, Barkley, Oatis, and Duper 
have anything to say about it. 

Don't forget, Saturday 7:00, 
Independence Stadium in 
Shreveport. Be there! 

Demon Hoopsters Begin Workouts 

Keith Epps, with the ball, of the Steelers scrambles for extra 
yardage in their 8-6 win over BSU-Wesley. Epps ran for two 
scores in the win. 

Coach Wayne Yates' second 
basketball season at Northwestern 
got underway Thursday when the 
Demons begin preparations for the 
November 28th opening game. 

Yates led the Demons to an 1 1-17 
mark a year ago as the Demons 
placed fifth in their first year of 
completing in the Trans America 
Conference. The Demons also won 
their final eight home games last 
season and will put the streak on the 
line when they open this year against 
Arkansas Tech. 

The Demons will work out at 3:00 
p.m. Monday through Friday and 
on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 
noon. Yates said his team will have 
Sunday's off. "That's the schedule 
we want to go by," said Yates. "It 
may have a change now and then 
depending on how things are going 
but it will be pretty much the same 
all the time." 

Yates has three returning starters 
from last year and six lettermen 
back on his squad of 15 players. The 
three returning starters include all- 
conference guard Wayne 
Waggoner, guard Melvin 
Youngblood and forward Earnest 
Reliford. Waggoner and Reliford 
are seniors while Youngblood is a 
sopho more. 

The other returning lettermen 
include junior guard Harry Francis, 
senior forward Jerry Lynch and 
sophmore forward Jerry Harris. 
All of those three players started at 
some time during the 1980-81 

While the opening regular season 
game isn't until November 28, the 
Demons will face Mexico in an 
exhibition game in Prather 
Coliseum on November 10. That 
exhibition was originally scheduled 
to be against an English team but 
the English tour was cancelled. 

"We have alot of work to do to 
be ready to play," added Yates early 
in the week. "We only have about 
three weeks before the exhibition 
game to get all of our offenses and 
defenses put in." 

Yates does feel it will be easier 
starting out than it was a year ago 
when everyone was new. "Again 
this year we have a number of new 
kids who will be learning the 
system." noted Yates. "But we do 
have a nucleus of players who are 
familiar with what we will be doing 
and a number of the new players 
have college experience already." 

With the year of learning and the 
new recruits that know his style,

Intramural Flag Football is just past the halfway point of the season and 
several teams remain undefeated. 

In the Women's division the VIP's (4-0) and Phi Mu (2-0) still have 
perfect records. 

The VIP's shut out the Omega Pearls 18-0 to record their second straight 
shutout win. Lisa Lennan, Susan Prince and Renetta Judice all had one TD 
in the victory. 

The Pearls received their second setback of the week; this time at the 
hands of Tri Sigma, 32-0. Donna Lafleur scored 18 points and Amy 
Williams added 12 more in the win. 

Kappa Sigma remained only unbeaten team in the Fraternity division as 
they rolled to two shutout wins last week. 

Mike Brown lead the Sigs to both wins scoring 12 poinyd in each game. 
The first game was a 20-0 blanking of Omega Psi Phi. In the second game, a 
28-0 win over TKE, Mark Cottrell added nine more points to Brown's 

The win over the Omegas could prove costly to the Sigs as they lost their 
star quarterback, Dean (The Dream) Napoli, who suffered a knee injury 
and will be out for the season. 

Kappa Alpha received their first setback of the year, an 18-6 lost to Phi 
Beta Sigma. Jerry Grines, Dewayne Nathan and Roland Carr all scored for 
the winners. 

Theta Chi took two wins on the week to even their record at 3-3. They 
defeated Phi Beta Sigma 28-18 as Dave Eichenoffer scored three times to 
lead the way. David Nardini scored 18 points in Theta Chi's second win of 
the week, a 3 1 - 1 8 win over Sigma Tau Gamma. 

TKE eased by Kappa Sigma no. 2, 8-6, using a Marty Guillory two point 
conversion for the difference. John Williams scored the six for TKE. 

In Independent action, Chris Marshall hooked up on three scoring tosses 
to James davis and another to Jim Oliver as the Jocks defeated G.D.I. 
Omen 28-25. Jimmy Ambler had two scores for Omen. 

Rodney Thrash and Davis each had one TD in the Jocks second win of 
the week, a 14-6 win over the Brotherhood. Robert Jackson had the six for 
the Brotherhood. 

David Saylors threw four touchdown passes and Wayne Lupo threw 
another as the Univ. of Yang annihilated East Rapides 48-0. Saylors, 
Donny Harrison, Joe Cunningham, Joe Mastrachio, CHris Moran, James 
Williams and Joe Bienvenu all scored for the Yangs. 

The Rapides Knights' Ron Cook, John George, Marvis Melvin and Mac 
Smothers all had one Td in their 26-12 victory over B and W. Ruff in and 
Patterson scored for B and W. 

Kurt Ryder scored two TDs to lead the Tasmanian Devils to a 20-13 
victory over the Bears. Jeff Powell did all the scoring for the Bears. 

Melvin LaCour hauled in two touchdown passes from Robert Jackson as 
the Brotherhood took a 20-6 win over the Kingpins. Kip Terrell scored for 
the Kingpins. 

Keith Epps' two touchdowns was all the Steelers needed to defeat BSU- 
Wesley 18-6. Mike Harrison and the six points for the losers. 

Joe Rome's touchdown was the only score in G.D.I. Omen's 6-0 win over 
the Kingpins. 

Wolf Robinson scored two TDs and Beckermeyer, Wiggins, and Choate 
added one each as Conine rolled to a 30-0 shutout of BSU— Wesley.

Yates is confident Northwestern can 
be stronger this season. "We made 
improvement as we went along last 
year," commented Yates. "Now the 
players know what we want to do 
and what we expect. Plus we feel we 
have some very fine recruits who 
can help us right away." 

The Demons have four junior 
college recruits, one transfer and 
four freshmen on hand to go with 
the returning lettermen. The 
transfer is 6-10 junior Johnny 
Martin from Shady Grove and he 
could be a big plus in the middle. 
The new players also include 6-11 
junior Jeff Ringham and 6-11 
freshman Anthony French to help 
the inside game while 6-5 junior 
Calvin Madlock is a top forward 
candidate along with rookie Roy 
Mitchell of Mansfield and fellow 
freshman Drew Herrick of 

In the backcourt Waggoner and 
Youngblood will be joined by 
juniors Kenny Hale and Fred

they could score while in junior 
college. The roster is rounded out by

Pigs Star, But Sjoberg 
Wins With Upset 

Last week's Porker Picker 
guest panelist's, J. Hamm, 
Arnold Ziffel, and Oscar Mayer had 
the last squeal on the rest of the 
Current Sauce Porker Picker staff. 

The triumvirate shocked the rest 
of the panel by picking unheralded 
Arkansas to defeat the number one 
ranked team in the nation, the Texas 
Longhorns, by scores that ranged 
from the ridiculous to the absurd. 

But lo and behold, all three 
picked the game right , and if it 
hadn't been for a last minute 
touchdown by Texas, Hamm's score 
of 42-3 would have been right on the 

In another startling 
breakthrough, Ziffel was one of 
only two panelist's to successfully 
pick the Michigan St. upset of 
Wisconsin. Bob Sjoberg, himself a 
humongous Big Ten fan, was the 
other winner. 

With that win, Sjoberg won the 
Panel Picking for the first time all 
year and moved to within three 
games of first place leader Joe 
Cunningham who suffered through 
a misble 6-4 week. Among Cun- 
ningham's most stupid picks was 
the Air Force over Tulane 

In second place for the week were 
Hamm, Dr. Ray Baumgardner, and 
David Stamey. For some odd reason 
they both missed the same three 
games which sparked rumors of 
collaberation, or even worse, 
cheating. Stamey vehemently denied 
the rumors and flatly stated. " 1 
MYSELF, I have a brain you know, 
I'm not just another pretty face." 

Dr. Baumgardner was a little 
suprised however when he learned 
of the coincidences. " I gave my 
picks to the little midget who always 
comes by my office for them." 

Dr. Baumgardner was then in- 
formed that the Porker Pickers does 
not employ a little midget to pick up 
the picks. Sjoberg and Cunningham 
then immediatly set out to Find 
Stamey and try to locate who this 
midget was working for. 

When they arrived at Stamey's 
apartment, they found him stuffing 
what looked like a Raggedy Ann 
doll in the back of his car. Muffled 
screams were heard from the trunk, 
but Stamey quickly pointed out that 
what he had was a doll that he had 
bought for his girlfriend's birthday 
and the talking part of it was 
malfunctioning so he was going to 
take it back. 

Sjoberg wanted to check out the 
doll story and asked to have a look 
in the trunk. Stamey said, "Not 
without a warrant you don't." 

Porker Pickers guest 
selector's are Freeman Thomas, the 
NSU noseguard, who will lead the 
Demons in their quest for their 
second State Fair win in three 
year's, Dean Napoli, who before he 
injured his leg in a really mean play 
in the flag football game held last 
week, was one of the 25 most feared 
quarterbacks in the 18 team league , 
and this year's State Fair Queen, 
Alison Breazeale, who put her 
reputation as one of the nation's 
most feared Porker Picker guest 
selectors on the line by predicting 
the District of Columbia to defeat 
Johnson C. Smith, in our weekly 
"who cares" game.

Poor Attendance Brought To SGA Discussion 

Photographs by Mike Fisher 

Kaye Henley sits and watches the activities at the Rally in the 
Alley Saturday afternoon. The Pep Rally started at 2:00 and 
was over shortly thereafter. One of the biggest crowds in 
modern State Fair history was on hand for the activities in the 
Shreve Square. 

Faust Named Assistant Director of Financial Aid 

Discussion on proper im- 
peachment proceedures, a fee incre- 
ase for the Argus, and poor at- 
tendance dominated the discussion 

at the Student Government 
Association meeting on Oct. 20. No 
actions were taken as there was not 
a quorum, or two-thirds majority of 
senators present, and the meeting 
was unofficial. 

The Student Supreme Court 
ruling that invalidated the im- 
peachment of Diana Kemp, 
Commissioner of Elections, was the 
main topic. 

Vice-President Kevin Bar- 
tholomew explained the ruling, and 
outlined the correct procedure. Bar- 
tholomew said the a committee 
should be formed to look into any 
problems. The committee would 
investigate problems, and make a 
recommendation to the SGA for or 
against impeachment. 

"It would be an investigation 
committee", said Bartholomew. 

Doug Ireland interjected that the 
process was "similar to the Grand 
jury indictment system". 

The question of whether the SGA 
would serve as jury for an actual 
impeachment trial was brought up 
by David LaVere. 

Justice Steve Soileau explained 
that the court recommended that the 
SGA not serve as the jury, but that 
the constitution clearly said that 
they should. 

Even though the court did 
recommend that the law be chang- 

ed, Soileau said, "The court just 
interprets the law... it cannot c'nange 
the constitution". 

"I think that this could get to be 
just like elections. We sould have an 
impeachment every week", com- 
mented a frustrated Russell 
Williams, who first introduced the 
impeachemnt bill. 

In other discussion, Bartholomew 
was angered by the lack of at- 
tendance at SGA meetings. 

"We've wasted a whole week", 
said Bartholomew. He referred to 
the fact that not enought senators 
showed up for the meeting, and 
therefore no action could be taken 
on any matter. 

Senator LaVere commented on an 
editorial in the Current about poor 
attendance on the part of SGA 

"Who are these people?", asked 
LaVere. He felt that the SGA would 
be better off without these people 
in office. 

When questioned by the SAUCE 
on whether football was an excused 
absence, Bartholomew brought the 
discussion on the subject of Stan 

Senator Powell has not been able 
to attend any SGA meetings this 
semester because of football 

Bartholomew said, "Joe and I 
have talked about the problem with 
Stan. There are two sides to the 
story. Stan understands that he 
should be here". 

In other matters* a proposed 

The recently created position of 
Northwestern Assistant Director of 
Financial Aid has been filled by a 28 
year old Mississippi native, Terry 

Faust has worked in recruitment 
and enrollment, as well as in 
financial aid. He said that because 
of his heavy background in both 
fields, he would work closely with 
the two offices here at NSU. 

The Assistant Director felt that a 
major problem in the financial aid 
department was the heavy 
workload. "Because of the volume 
of work it is becoming impossible to 
do it manually", said Faust. 

Faust outlined his goal of using a 
computer to assist in record keeping 
and other duties in the department. 
He explained that they were 
presently in use in most colleges 
and universitites. 

Faust was quick to assure that the 
department would never go com- 
pletely computerized. 

"No omputer is ever going to 
choose who will get an award 
(scholarship). A computer cannot 
judge the needs of individuals", 
said Faust. 

A major complaint that Faust 
said he had heard from students is 
that during registration they do not 
know what aid they will be 

"The problems is we send out the 
letters and students don't return 
them. We have no way of knowing 
if they are coming or not", said 

Award letters are sent to a student 
to notify him of his eligibility for 
financial aid. 

Faust explained that a plan to 
send out award letters earlier will be 
started this summer. The depart- 
ment will then be able to receive the 
letters in plenty of time to complete 
the aid package for the student by 

The 28 year old Assistant Director 
received his undergraduate degree in 
Social work from Delta State 
University of Mississippi in 1975. 
He received his Masters in 
Guidance Counseling from Delta in 

A native of Sledge, Mississippi, 
Faust worked as Director of Ad- 
missions and Recruiting at East 
Mississippi Junior College. 

He was promoted to the position 
of Director of Financial Aid in 
1979, where he has worked until 
coming to NSU. 

A Pi Kappa Alpha, Faust said 
that he was impressed with NSU, 
although it was larger than the 
junior college he had come from. 

"It took some time to adjust to 
the larger operation", said Faust. 

Faust said, "I hope to be here for 
a long time. I'm excited about the 
possibilities and anytime the 
students want to talk with me, feel 
free to come by my office". 

student fee increase of 75 cents for 
spring and fall semesters and 25 
cents for summer sessions was asked 
for by Argus Publisher Jane Pat- 

Ms. Patterson explained that the 
publication needed the increase 
because the publication was losing 

Sacrifices of cutting pages from 
the Argus, and of only publishing 
the magazine once a year, instead of 
once a semester had helped the 
magazine get through the year, said 
Ms. Patterson. 

The Publisher wanted input from 
the SGA on when the Argus should 
ask for the increase. 

In election matters, Com- 
missioner of Elections Diana Kemp 
announced the passage of the 
amendment to allow ADOS and 
WCC campuses to vote for Nat- 
chitoches SGA executive officers. 

The Commissioner also an- 
nounced that Mr and Miss NSU el- 
ections would be held on Nov. 1 1 . 

The subject of the NSU SGA — 
Tech SGA football game last 
Monday night provoked a heated 
controversy when Ms. Kemp 
questioned the right of several 
players who she did not think were 
SGA memebers. 

Ms. Kemp said that John 
Mallory, Jay Vail, and Joe Bien- 
venu, amoung others, had not been 
approved to SGA committees and 
should not have played in the game. 

"We might have won, but did we 
win fairly?", she added, "I think we 
owe them (Tech) an apology", said 
Ms. Kemp. 

President Joe Stamey said that 
the players were on committees, but 
the SGA had not approved them 
yet. "Many of our male senators 
were not able to play", said Stamey. 

Stamey explained that committee 
members had been asked to play 
when the SGA senators could not. 

Senator Williams commented 
"They know how it is, they just 
came for the free beer anyway". 

"When you play against Tech it's 
not how you play, it's whether you 
win or lose", said Senator Ireland. 

In other discussion, President 
Stamey announced that Governor 
Treen would be visiting the NSU 
campus on Monday, and the SGA 
had extended an invitation to Treen 
to attend their Monday night 

Stamey also said that New 
Orleans Mayor Ernest Morial has 
agreed to come to the Distinguished 
Lecturer Series. Stamey added that 
several other Louisiana politicians 
are being invited to the Series. 

The popular Free Speech Alley 
was applauded by Public Relations 
Committee Chairman, David 

"The Free Speech Alley is the best 
thing the SGA started in a long 
time", said Stamey, adding "and it 
didn't even cost any money". 

Tech Students Caught in Pranks 

The event of State Fair Week 
brought on Tech pranksters in 
several campus incidents. 

Three Tech students were caught 
rolling President Bienvenu's lawn 
with toilet paper at 9 p.m. on Oct. 
19, according to University Police 

The officers gave chase, and 
caught one of the students. They 
were advised by President Bienvenu 
to hold the student at the house. 

As the officers were leaving, 
another student surrendered. 

In another incident, 30-35 
members of Tech's Kappa Alpha 
fraternity members raided the 
Sigma Kappa House on Second Str- 
eet, at 12:30 a.m. on Oct. 21, ac- 
cording to Sigma Kappa President 
Billy Joe Harrington. 

Harrington said the Kappa 
Alpha's threw eggs and paint 
balloons, breaking windows and 
staining carpet and curtains. 

"Alot of our people had gone to 
Tech and there were only three of us 
here to protect the house. So we had 

to stand our ground as best we 
could", said Harrington. 

The Sigma Kappa President 
stated that he had talked to the 
president of Tech's Kappa Alpha, 
and the fraternity agreed to pay for 
damages to the house. 

Unofficial rumors indicate that 
members of the Kappa Alpha 
fraternity of Natchitoches con- 
tributed to the raid. 

Harrington estimated damages 
done to the house at approximately

KNWD; The Voice of Northwestern 

By Sonja Downer 
SAUCE Reoorter 

A flip of a switch, the twist of a 
dial, and the sounds of KNWD emit 
from the radio. Across campus, in 
the cramped quarters of the old 
Russel Library, a student works to 
keep the air filled with music, news 
and weather. 

K— Northwestern Demons, is the 
campus radio station located at 92 
on your FM dial. Broadcasting since 
1975, the station is non-profit and is 
set up for the benefit of students. 
Funds for the station are included in 
fees which are paid at the begin- 
ting of each semester. Two dollars 
from each student is used keep the 
radio station on the air. 

Richard Fillet, master mind and 
general manager of the station 
assured me, "We use all the money 
We get. The money isn't wasted. It s 
spent on scholarships, equipment 
ar >d for the general upkeep of the 

Richard has engineered the 
redesign of the interior from what 
appeared to be a closet to the more 
°nvenient arrangement now being 
sed. Office space and studio space 
* re very limited. It is Fillet's desire 
move to more spacious quarters 
efore he graduates in the spring. 
The studio of KNWD resembles 
lr »at of a Boeing 707. A row of 
Panels, then a board with switch 
after switch, dial after dial, which 
"eD.j. must manipulate. 

Two turntables constantly 
su Pport albums. Also within close 

reach of the D.J. are the public 
service announcements which the 
station broadcasts. 

D.J.'s are an interesting breed at 
KNWD. Of the 20 staff members, 
only two or three are broadcasting 
majors. D.J.'s work two or three 
hour shifts and they work only for 
the enjoyment and satisfaction of 
hearing their taste of music broad 

The program does reflect the 
individual behind the scenes. 
"KNWD is so unique, because you 

get to play own individual taste," 
explained Suzie Talley. D.J.'s are 
required to play three new albums 
an hour and two top hundred 

News and weather are given pe 
reiodically thanks to the newly 
added Teletype machine. This 

allows up to the minute updates on 
weather, news and sports. So much and sports it often 
sprawls across the newsroom floor. 

Besides the main studio, there is 
also a taping room located in the 
former main broadcasting room. In 
this small space orginates the brain • 
storms and ditties that amuse and 
often attack. A good example of 
this work is the "digs" made to 
Tech during state fair week. 

In their recent effort to raise the 
needed money, Curt Boudreaux and 
Ginny Whitaker, the music director, 

sat on the three columns in front of 
Caldwell hall in the first ever NSU 
Pole Sitting Radiothon. Efforts 
brought in $1,272.99 and $351.74 in 
pledges. This was short of the 
$8,000 goal set. 

KNWD is broadcast from 7am till 
midnight. Special events such as the 
SGA vs. Tech SGA, are also aired 
on 92 fm. Other special atractions 
include the Monday Night Talk 
show, "What's on your Mind?", 
album showcase, and coverage of 
other events around campus. 

"A lot of people ;urn on the 
station and expect something great. 
The people that work here, they 
don't have to know radio. We don't 
expect magic. People expect, they 
ought to try it, and they'll screw up 
just like everyone else," responded 
Fillet, when asked about criticism. 

"We hope to put DJ's on the air 
only when they are ready, ' he 
further explained. The DJs are 
trained in the sound room for a 
total of about 15 hours. Anyone can 
be a DJ that wants to be. In order to 
run the station at the level he would 
like, Richard stated the need for 30 
to 40 staff members. "Tell me

A bizarre burglary of the Ad- 
missions and Financial Aid offices 
in Caldwell Hall netted thieves over 
$6,000 worth of stolen office 

According to Campus Police 
reports, the intruders gained entry 
into Caldwell on the basement level. 

The thieves entered Financial 
Aid's office by removing the screws 
from a vent on the door, and 
unlocking the door. 

The Admissions office showed no 
signs of forced entry, and the door 
was unlocked the next morning. 

Reports indicate that five IBM 
typewriters valued at $800 to $900 
apiece, six calculators,. and two 
eight track tape players were 
reported missing. 

The case has authorities baffled 
over childish pranks that occurred 
during the robbery. 

"They emptied a flower pot on 
Mrs. McNeely's desk, and they 
threw coffee grounds all over the 
office", said Richard H. Galloway, .... 
Dean of Basic Studies and Services. ' 

"There were some doughnuts that 
the secretaries had bought to eat, 
and they helped themselves", said 

Galloway said that an endorsed 
check for $150 was taken from the 
Financial Aid office, but some cash 
was left untouched. 

"This is not the work of college 
students, it looks like an outside 
job", said Galloway. 

Chief James Lee, of University 
Police, said the building was last 
checked between 10 and 1 1 p.m. on 
Wednesday night. 

The break-in was discovered by a 
custodial worker early the next

Vet Tech Gives Practical Application Experience 

Bv Rarhio Well 

By Barbie Hall 
SAUCE Reporter 

"Working with animals is what 
we all have in common, it is a very 
rewarding field." said Becky 
Doucet, a Veterinary Technology 
student at NSU, about the 
Veterinary Technology program 
here at Northwestern. 

The program is a rather new one 
at Northwestern. This is the 1st 
program of its kind in Louisiana. It 
was introduced in 1975. In 1979, Dr. 
George Younger and Dr. Melanie 

Moore joined the staff. The 
program is now experiencing rapid 
growth, according to Program 
Director Younger. 

The program now contains ap- 
proximately 25 students, mostly 
girls. Dr. Younger attributes the 
growth to a widening job field and 
the amount of enjoyment that goes 
along with the study. 

Younger stated, "No student that 
has graduated from Northwestern 

(in Vetinary Technology) has ever 
had trouble getting a job." 

Job opportunities have expanded 
because the attitude of vetinarians 
has changed. Vetinarians are more 
receptive to having a vetinary 
technologist working with them, 
stated Younger. 

The Vetinary Technology 
program is a two year program that 
provides training for students who

You need energy 
to get a job! 

Industry and business need customers to 
buy the products they make. They also need 
energy to produce those products. In order to 
supply the needed energy, utility companies 
must take advantage of the most up-to-date 
technology and make full use of every 
available energy source including nuclear 
power and coal. The failure to utilize these 
two sources of energy along with others 
available could seriously jeopardize the 
industrial and economic growth of our entire 
area. And growth is what provides jobs.

Runion Presentation 

Two presentations by Dr. Keith 
Runion of Northwestern State 
University are scheduled for the 
Louisiana Personnel and Guidance 
Association's annual convention 
Oct.25-28 in Metairie. 

Runion is assistant professor and 
chairman of the NSU Division of 
Counseling and Guidance in the 
Department of Education 
Psychology and Student Services. 
He served as president of the 
Louisiana Personnel and Guidance 
Association in 1979-80. 

Runion will present one program 
entitled "Mental Health Delivery 
Systems to and by Native 
Americans," and the other will be a 
demonstration of Alderian Family 
Counseling, a model of family 
counseling based upon the work of 
Allfred Adlerian and Rudolf 

The presentation on mental 
health delivery systems is based on a 
research grant to Runion and Dr. 
Hiram F. Gregory of NSU from the 
National Institute of Mental Health. 
They received the grant in 1978 to 
coordinate the training of native 
Americans for delivery of mental 

health and social services to people 
in their own Indian tribal groups. 

The nine-month training program 
enabled representatives of four 
tribal groups to be trained to 
establish within their communities 
referral services for state and 
federal agencies which do not have 
the manpower to offer outreach 
programs to the tribal groups. 

Runion's role in the project was 
to train the tribal leaders in the use

Kineses To Perform Oct. 27 

by Charlene Elvers 

Kinesis will be on the Nor- 
thwestern campus Tuesday, Oct. 27 
at 8 p.m. in the Student Union 
Ballroom to perform a unique bland 
of music in a jazz-type fashion. 

This eight piece jazz-rock cor- 
poration performed to a .capacity 
crowd at the 1100 seat Lincoln 
Community Center complex in Fort 
Collins, Colorado in their recent 
concert debut. 

Since their debut, Kinesis has 
performed concerts throughout a 
five-state region, including 
universities, community concert 
halls, and nightclub and concert 
facilities. The band also recorded 
and produced its first album of 
original compositions at the 

Caribou Ranch recording facilities 
in early Aug. 1980, where stars such 
as Chicago and Elton John, in- 
cluding many others, have 
previously recorded their hits. 

Aside from receiving high reviews 
from many critics, the NBC affiliate 
station KOA Denver, produced a 
special segment report on Kinesis at 
Caribou Ranch. This segment was 
shown on Aug. 17th and 18th on the 
news and Kinesis has been featured 
in several interview shows on radio. 

All eight musicians plus one 
sound and lighting engineer are all 
experienced performers and the 
evening promises to be pleasing to 
the casual listener as well as the 
music critic. 

Badger Wins High Point At Pony Show 

Margaret Badger, a Northwestern 
State University sophomore equine 
science major from Houston, Tex., 
won the adult division high point 
championship at the American 
National Welsh Pony Show recently 
in Tulsa, Okla. 

Miss Badger was showing 
Timbercreeek Morning Mist, an 
eight-year-old mare, which was one 
of three horses she exhibited during 
the four-day show. 

Timbercreek Morning Mist won 
first place in the pleasure trail class, 
second in pleasure driving cham- 

pionship with adult driver and adult 
English pleasure, and third in 
pleasure driving for mares and adult 
western pleasure. 

Miss Badger also showed the 
three-year-old mare Tylwyth Glen 
Song, who was third in the junior 
pony English pleasure class and 
fourth in the class for three and 
four-year-old mares at halter. 

Another Welsh Pony exhibited by 
Miss Badger was Tylwyth Talent, 
who placed third in the class for 
yearling fillies at halter.

Doug Ireland's Notebook 


...The Word is More on Kemp 

UN ; 

A few last words, at least for a while, on the unfortunate issue that is 
plagueing the SGA and Northwestern in general. 

It seems that like the old adage, innocent until proven guilty 
going the way of the Edsel, hula-hoop and Richard Nixon, 
everybody still remembers it, but nobody gives a damn about it. 

is slowly 
That is, 


A few nights ago some demented skum threw a cinder block through 
Dianna Kemp's bedroom window. Fortunately for Dianna, and ultimately 
for whoever threw it, she was not hurt. But the fact remains that Dianna 
could have been hurt very seriuosly if the block had been thrown threw the 
other window. 

Natchitoches Police cannot dismiss this as just an act of breaking into a 
house. Dianna's room is located right by several outside lights and any 
burglar with half an ounce of sense would have known that you do not 
break into a well liehted area. 


The guilt or innocence of Dianna Kemp rests solely with whoever is left in 
charge of hearing the case that will come to trial in the next few weekss, and 
with that body alone. 

No, obviously this was an act by someone whose morals could be 
grouped with a load of manure, and nobody would know the difference. 

Dianna's fate does not rest with anybody else. Certainly the Sauce has not 
; condemned nor pardoned Dianna for what has happened, and neither has 
the SGA. As we said before, her guilt or innocence rests with the people in 
charge of hearing her case. 

Hopefully the trial and decision will come forth soon, so the SGA can put 
this unfortunate chapter behind them and concentrate on representing the 
students of Northwestern State University like they are supposed to do. 

...The Word is Importance 

Two years ago, after Northwestern staged a dramatic come-from-behind 
win over Louisiana Tech in the annual State Fair Game, Mike Gallien, then 
Focus Editor for the Sauce, ran a story asking the question, 'How Big 
Should It Be?' 

The game is considered the social as well as athletic highlight of the year. 
All year long the NSU student's ponder the fate of the Demon football team 
in the State Fair Classic. All year long the NSU student's make ready for 
the two to three day weekend in Shreveport.

Thoughts while scrambling 
around to pay off lost bets from the 
State Fair Game. . . 

...I won't believe it until after it 
happens, but the Student Union 
Governing Board apparently is 
about to pull off a miracle of sorts. 
With Hall & Oates already having 
visited Northwestern for a concert 
this fall, who'd have thought we 
might have a "big name" act for the 
Christmas Festival concert? 

Obviously, riot I. But if things 
pan out we'll be listening to Atlanta 
Rhythm Section for the concert. 

I just don't know what to say. I 
guess after last year's unfunny joke 
concert of bar band Texas 
Tradition, the SUGB felt it should 

Radical Rag 

try and make amends. If it didn't 
feel that way, it should have. 

And if the SUGB folks pull this 
one off, we'll have to consider all 
accounts squared. Even if they 
sometimes have been a little 
secretive about their budget, and 
even if they can't find movies to 
show that please everybody, I guess 
we'll be satisfied. 

Not all of us, naturally, but I'll 
bet a big segment of the NSU 
population will be pleased with 
ARS. Now, about the spring 

...It's finally fall. On the 
calendear it has been for about a 
month, but on the thermometer 
we've still been waiting for cool 

We get our first cold snap each 

year about Worl d Series time. It 
must have something to do with 
watching baseball being played on 
fields that have been cleared of ice 
and snow. 

There's nothing that upset me 
more this time of year than having 
to wear short sleeves to the State 
Fair. It just ought to be a little 
nippy while you're walking down 
the midway during the fourth 

I like the idea of cup of hot cocoa 
in the morning. It means that deer 
season can't be too far around the 
corner, and that we'll be getting 
some good squirrel mulligan before 
too long. 

Sliding the temperature control in 
the car over from cool to hot has 
some hidden meaning, like the 
plunge of the lemmings and the 
swallows coming back to Cap- 

tistrano. I guess it signals a passage 
of time, another season of summer 
memories to recall while shivering 
from the walk to class. 

The cold snaps wreak havoc on 
on-campus dwellers. The heat in the 
dorms gets turned on just in time for 
an 80 degree day. It goes off on the 
afternoons before the windiest, 
wettest, most bitter cold night 
imaginable. The hot water in the 
bathrooms is non-existent on the 
first brisk morning of fall. 

It means wearing flannel shirts 
and carrying a jacket. It means we 
are a year older, much richer for the 
experience and hopefully much 
wiser. It means a refreshing clarity 
of mind as you stand in the early 
morning mist and breathe the bitter 
cold, but beautifully clean air. 

But most of all, it means finals 
can't be far away... 

Last week Rag mentioned 
something about being mad. Well 
this week there are a few more 
thoughts to add to that list. 

First, I'm mad as hell at the city 
of Shreveport. If that city ever, 
ever, has financial difficulties like 
the cities of Cleveland and New 
York have had, I sure hope that 
whoever is president doesn't bail 
them out. Shreveport can just ask 
those people who swarm into the 
State Fair to take up some of the 

Now granted, I put myself in a 
position to get taken, just by going 
to that town for the Fair and the 
NSU— Tech game in the first place. 
But I never realized how close to 
bankruptcy that I was until I came 
back to Natchitoches. 

First of all, if costs you three 

dollars just to park your dadgum 
car in some glass-filled parking lot, 
or worse yet, a field knee-deep in 
weeds. Then, just for the 
privalege(?) of walking into the 
fairgrounds itself you have to pay 
another two dollars per person to 
walk the mile and a half to the 

Then, even with my ever trusty 
NSU ID I had to pay eight more 
dollars for a pair of tickets to our 
own team's football game! 

So by now I had payed fifteen 
dollars and hadn't . much as seen a 
down of the football game. 

And if that wasn't enough, I 
completely lost my concentration 
on the football game when a girl in 
the next row freaked on some dust 
or something and started taking off 
her clothes. A Bo Derek she is not! 

David Stamey's Amazin' Pointz 

Eugene Christmas, Nor- 
thwestern's popular athletic 
trainer, is one in a million. 

Few at Northwestern have ever 
worked harder than Mr. Christmas. 
His schedule is seven days a week 
from daylight until well after dark. 

His primary responsibility is 
serving the Demon athletic teams, 
but he is never too busy to make his 
facilities and services available to 
students and community members. 

Mr. Christmas was recently 
named Man of the Year in Nat- 
chitoches Parish, so his reputation 
and popularity extend far beyond 
the NSU campus. 

I'm glad NSU is honoring 
someone who has done so much for 
the school while he is still around. 
Much too often we wait too late to 
honor such people. 

This will not be the case, I think 
tha tells something about this man. 

Contributions are being accepted 
to establish a Eugene Chrismas 
Scholarship for pre-physical therapy 
students. It is being run through the 
NSU Foundation. 

Few in history have given more 
time and energy to Northwestern. 

He will be receiving a well 
deserved recognition Nov. 21; 
Eugene Christmas Day. 

Many people would consider a 1-10 season record a winning record, as 
long as that win was over the hated Bulldogs of Tech. But, by the same 
token, if the Demons went 10-1 , and their only loss came at the hands of the 
Bulldogs, many people would consider it a lost year. 

Why all the emphasis on this one game? Northwestern has a nine game 
schedule. Aren't the rest of the games as important as this one? 

For an independent school like Northwestern, every game is an important 
. one. At the end of the season, the big guys in the Division 1-AA offices go 
to the boards to pick the eight best teams in the country. If NSU is 10-1 , and 
the only loss being Tech, the big guys would still probably pick the Demons 
for a playoff spot. But if that record was 1-10, with the only win coming 
against the Bulldogs, the Demons wouldn't stand a snowballs chance of 
being selected. 

Northwestern put close to 8,000 people in the stands for this year's State 
Fair Game. What is really amazing about this is that the game was played 
80 miles away from Natchitoches. 

Do you tnink that possibly NSU could get those 8,000 people to come to 
one of their home games? It sure would be nice. The onlv trouble is, that 
NSU has only one more home game to play. And that' game is against 
Northeast University Indians. Sure do wish that we could get 8,000 peopl 
there for that game. . . 

Radical Rag Part ii 

The students of the Natchitoches 
campus get to vote, directly or 
indirectly, on almost every student 
official at the Natchitoches campus, 

We vote on all of the Executive 
positions and senatorial positions of 
the SGA. They in turn approve 
committees who aprove the General 
Manager of KNWD, the Editor of 
the Sauce, Potpourri, and Argus 
among others. We even get to vote 
on representatives to the SUGB. 

Now comes the taxations without 

The SUGB receives over eight 
dollars per student from every full- 
time student at the Natchitoches 
campus. Yet, we do not elect the 
President, Vice-President, and 
Secretary of the SUGB. I thought 
the days of King George were over. 
What does it take to get us a vote for 
people who control so much of our 
student fees 

I'm not really complaining about 
the job the SUGB is doing. It is the 
system, and there needs to be a 

I know you take a chance when 
you elect someone from outside the 
elite SUGB circle, but they could 
make certan requirements of 

previous service. 

If we are going to be taxed, I want 
to have some say in who has final 
control over the expenditures of my 

Also along the SUGB lines, I have 
a question that I don't know the 
answer to. 

Who picks the Christmas Festival 
band Does the SUGB just take it 
upon themselves to decide what the 
town of Natchitoches and 
everybody else wants to hear that 
night Was Atlanta Rhythm Section 
the ONLY choice that we had for 
that night Why can't we get the 
town of Nachitoches to chip in some 
money and help us get a real good 
band Why can't the NSU students 
pay four dollars to see a big name 
group perform We payed four 
extra dollars to wach the State Far 

Surely with a little hustling here 
and a little hustling there, the SUGB 
could find another real big name 
group to perform like the Hall and 
Oates act that played here last 

And one more thing. Could't the 
SUGB publish a list of potential acts 
to play at NSU and let the students 
of NSU decide who thev want 

Letter To The Editor 


The more that I read the Current 
Sauce the more frustrated I become. 
To think that people have nothing 
better to do but sit and think "now 
who can I get now?" is beyond me. 
The accusation that I consider to be 
slander and defamation of character 
is the one concerning myself - 
Wendy Scrimshaw. I have tried to 
do what I thought was represen- 
tation of the ADOS campus 
students, but never had any idea 
that I was going into a den of lions, 
and was to become their SUPPER. I 
made a mistake, which I confessed 
to at the meeting of October, 
directly to the SGA council and 
senators. I am sorry that ever 

Just about the time I started back 
to watching the game, everyone's 
attention turned to one of our many 
football players who had been 
suspended from this game. He was 
in the stands getting into a fight with 
some guy who had a bag over his 
head, apparently imitating the bags 
that were worn by fans of the New 
Orleans Saints last year. 

By the way, I'm also mad that 
NSU did not win. I was looking 
forward to a day off. 

There are two other things that 
make me mad too. One of them 
concerns Northwestern, the other 
does not. 

First, I hate it when I'm watching 
television in mixd company and one 
of them freakin' womens feminine 
hygiene commercials comes on. 

Now I'm not easily embarrassed, 
but it don't matter what you are, in 
a situation like this, you can't help 
but feel embarrassed. 

Second, on my school calendar it 
said that midterm grades were due 
almost two weeks ago. WHERE 

By the time the different 
departments finish with the grades it 
will be too late to know what I had 
at the middle of the semester, by 
then I will want to know what I 
made on the final. And another 
thing, when I went to try and find 
the grades, the secretary told me 
that she didn't have them yet , but 
that when they got here, I would 
have to go to three different rooms 
to find all my grades. What ever 
happened to the ancient custom of 
putting all the grades on one slip of 

The NSU basketball team which 
will kick off its 1981-82 schedule 
Nov. 10 against last year's Mexico 
National Champions. 

The Demons will have eight new 
team members including big Johnny 
Martin, who ranked nationally In 
rebounding two years ago for 
Arkansas College. 

There will be six of last year's 
Demons returning for duty in- 
cluding Wayne Waggoner, Jerry 
Lynch, Harry Francis, Jerry Harris, 
and Melvin Youngblood. 

When Coach Yates came to NSU 
he said he was going to create a 
home-court advantage, something 
that in the past was missing. 

Well something happened 
because the Demon currently own a 
eight game home winning streak. 

Part of the home-court advantage 

Coach Yates created was to have 
courtside seating. 

In an effort to increase the NSU 
basketball budget, one of the lowest 
in the state, new courtside seats were 
installed. They were sold to local 
Northwestern fans. 

No, Coach Yates haven't 
forgotten about the students. 

In addition to having the 25 seats 
on both ends of the new courtside 
seats, stands will be set up in both 
end zones to keep the students close 
to the action. 

This will keep that much needed 
home-court advantage and give the 
staff a little more badly needed 
money for traveling and recruiting 

The students are hungry for a 
winner. I believe Coach Yates and 
Coach Roark have the formula.

things straight I am not a LIAR and 
resent the accusation of being the 
same. I would like to know just how 
may of you out there have lived such 
a perfect life, that you can sit there 
in judgment of ANYONE. I am 
concensus that Ms. Kemp is not 
fully to blame for this whole thing, 
but I will not take blame that does 
not apply. I would like to say this 
one thing more, "...let the first one

well in this election controversy, and 
I only hope it will make all of youj

Comeback Falls Short ... 

Tech Deals NS U Another State Fair Defeat, 3 7-33 

SHREVEPORT-Once again, Northwestern put a demanding defense on 
display in the State Fair Classic. 

The way the Demon defense played demanded that the NSU offense score 
on every possession. 

Louisiana Tech took advantage of the "Take me, I'm yours," defense by 
NSU to notch another State Fair victory, the 11th in 12 years for the 
Bulldogs, by a 37-33 count before 22,300 interested bystanders in In- 
dependence Stadium. 

Most of the gathering headed for the cotton candy and carnival games 
when Tech moved to a 37-20 lead with just over five minutes left. They 
didn't take into account the Tech "defense" which spent the remainder of 
the game trying to let NSU win it. 

And unbelievably, the Demons nearly did. This was a State Fair Classic 
that wasn't over until it was over, when Tech held on to an onside kick with 
just under a minute left and the Demons out of time outs. 

It was a game reminiscent of a Golden Gloves boxing match, with both 
combatants slugging away without any concer for stopping the other guy. 

"Damndest thing I ever say," mused Tech Coach Billy Brewer. "If the 
people were on the midway at the fair they missed a heck of a football 
game. It makes old men out of coaches." 

The top Dog must have aged a few years after the game's first play from 
scrimmage when Eric Barkley and Mark "Super" Duper combined on a 76- 
yard touchdown pass. 

"It caught us flatfooted." Brewer understated, obviously referring to his 
defensive secondary. "That number 28 (Duper) was in the backfield." 

"It was a special play just for this occasion," explained Barkley. "We 
saw it on their films. We knew their tendencies. We knew it would work." It 
did, and after Dale Quickel booted the conversion, NSU held a 7-0 lead just 
16 seconds into the contest. 

But it was tit for tat as the Bulldogs trotted downfield to tie it at 7-7, 
unchecked by the Demon defense. Rickey Johnson, who spearheaded the 
10-play, 70-yard drive, ended it by taking a toss from Matt Dunigan for a 
12-yard TD. 

"That could have been the biggest turning point of the game," said 

The Techsters used a 14-yard pass from John Lee to Freddie "Glad 
Hands" Brown, the Dog receiver with an amazing ability to drop sure 
touchdown passes, to go in front 14-7 with 9:46 left before halftime. 
Johnson's fourth down leap over the Demon fine two snaps before picked 
up a crucial first down and set up the score, which closed out a 10-play, 6-

Keep In Shape 

By Winning Tourneys 

Fall tennis is not taken seriously 
by many schools. To most of them, 
it exists only to provide a player 
with some added playing experience 
leading into the spring season, and 
that's all 

But someone forgot to tell 
Northwestern tennis members to 
take it easy, especially the likes of 
Jorge Salkeld, Nelson Aerts, and 
Shirley Echaiz. Echaiz has been in 
two tournaments this fall, and has 
won an outright championship, plus 
a consolation title. 

Two weeks ago in the Texarkana 
Invitational she took the con- 
solation crown. After losing to 
Cheryl Stanford of Texas A and M 
in the second round, Echaiz later 
went on to dispose of Louisiana 
Tech's Wendy Williams 6-4, 6-4 in 
the finals. Then this past weekend in 
the women's open draw tourney 
held at the NSU courts, she breezed 
to the title, losing only one set along 
the way. Echaiz lost her only set in 
the finals to Nannette Varela, who 
she topped for the championship 6- 
4, 6-7, 6-2. 

Salkeld has been just as im- 
pressive as he took a strong second- 
place finish in the Texarkana 
tournament, and teamed with Aerts 
to win the men's doubles in the NSU 

After picking up a first-round bye 
m Texarkana, Salkeld proceeded to 
knock off five straight opponents 
along the way to lead him into the 


championship match against highly- 
regarded Kelly Evernden of 
Arkansas. Evernden proved to be 
too much for Salkeld as the 
Razorback grabbed the win in 
straight sets 6-4, 7-5. 

Coming off the runner up sinrles 
performance, Salkeld went the 
doubles route with Aerts to take the 
top spot, not losing one set along 
the way. The duo of Salkeld and 
Aerts dumped NSU teammates Iker 
Ortiz and Alfredo Trullenque in the 
finals 6-4, 6-3. 

You could say that Aerts had an 
exceptional tournament last week. 
Not only did the freshman win in 
doubles competition but he also 
grabbed the top spot in singles 
competition. Aerts made quick 
work of Terry Dalzall and Donny 
Lovo in the early rounds before 
dumping Ortiz 6-0, 6-4 in the semis, 
then bounced Trullenque for the 
title 6-3, 6-4. 

Outside of Echaiz, Salkeld and 
Aerts there were other bright spots 
for coach Johnnie Emmons' forces. 
Even though they did not win any 
titles, Ortiz and Trullenque played 
well. And when they did lose, it was 
to their own teammates. 

The Demons should be definitely 
strengthened by the additio of Aerts 
to the lineup, and there is hope that 
NSU can improve on last season's 
22-3 record, along with its second- 
place finish in the Trans-America

yard journey. 

The purple-and-white crew from Natchitoches answered with Quicker s 
22-yard field goal to close the margin to 14-10 at the 5: 17 Mark. They erased 
it altogether the next time they got the ball, ending a 58-yard, six-play 
march when Barkley hit Terry Joe Ramsey, who was so alone on the right 
sideline you might have thought he had the plague, on a 32-yarder. 
Quickel's extra-point gave the Demons a 17-14 edge at intermission. 

"I really thought we were executing well in the last part of the first half," 
said NSU coach A.L. Williams. With 284 total yards to Tech's 164 at 
halftime. The Demons were on the right track. There was indeed light at the 
end of the long tunnel of Tech wins. In turned out to be an oncoming train. 

The Techmen put the ball into the end zone on their first three 
possessions of the second half while NSU managed only a Quickel three- 
pointer. The Bulldogs ran around, through and over the Demons while the 
NSU attack sputtered. 

"The defense didn't do the job of stopping their potent offense the way 
we would have liked to," said Williams. "The failure to contain the running 
game in the second half really hurt." 

Another thing that didn't help at all was the NSU punting game. Regular 
punter Leo Clement is nursing a broken finger and couldn't handle deep 
snaps. Barkley shanked punts of 19 and 17 yards that set up Tech in great 
field position. 

"Obviously, I'm not the first string punter," he said. "I hit both of them 
very badly." 

Tech took the second half kickoff and cruised downfield for Carlton 
Jacobs' two-yard TD sweep that put the Rustonites back on top. Billy Cox 
missed the PAT to leave it at 20-17 with 10-40 showing in the third period. 

The Demons knotted it at 20-all when Quickel hooked in a career-best 47- 
yarder that moved him to' six-of -seven on field goal tries this year. From 
there, the Techsters put 17 unanswered points on the books. 

Ronnie Williams danced in from three yards out, wrapping up a 59-yard 
drive and giving the Bulldogs a 27-20 edge after Cox converted with 3:01 left 
in the period. 

Barkley' s 19-yard punt gave Tech possession at their 48 and seven plays 
later it was 34-20 and some fans were heading for the fair. The 'Dogs went 
the distance on he ground, Dunigan diving in from the one just 28 seconds 
into the fourth quarter to finish it off. 

The 17-yard shank ended the next Demon series and ended up on the 
NSU 38 but a fumbled pitch killed the Tech attack that time, forcing a punt. 
Sophomore Stan Powell stepped in at quarterback and moved the 

Lady Demons Working 

Hard For Season Opener 

It's getting to the point where you 
would like to see steady im- 
provement in your squad during 
practices and scrimmages, especially 
when the season is only three weeks 

Such is the case for Nor- 
thwestern's Lady Demons' coach 
Pat Pierson. And the fourth coach 
has seen both feast and famine in 
pre-season scrimmages, but in the 
order where you would like to see it. 

"We looked terrible in our first 
scrimmage against Angelina Junior 
College of Texas on Monday, 
"Pierson stated. "We shot the ball 
poorly and looked disorganized." 

Then, all of a sudden, what a 
difference two days made as Pierson 
beamed over the Lady Demons 
progress in an intersquad game. "I 
couldn't believe this was the same 
team that played Monday," Pierson 
added. "We shot well, rebounded 
well, and Our execution was good. I 
hope this is a sign of good things to 

One player who has impressed 
Pierson in the pre-season has been 
center Tracy Taylor. The 6-3 
sophomore is counted upon to carry 
a big load of the team's fortunes in 
81-82, just as are the other two 
returning starters, Sharon Brown 
and Marilyn Gates. "Tracy has the 
potential to be a dominating 
player," Pierson commented. "She 
is physical on the boards and can 
also get up and down the court on 
the fastbreak." 

The Lady Demons, who hope to 
improve on last year's 22-8 record, 
will open the season on the road, 
November 16, against Lousiana 
College. The month of November 
will be a good test for NSU as they 
will play the likes of Arkansas, 

Southeastern Louisiana, and LSU 
along the way. Southeastern will 
invade Prather Coliseum for the 
home opener on November 28. 

This season, the team consists of 
13 players. Returning from last 
season at forward-center is senior 
Marilyn Gates, and at center, 
sophmore Tracy Taylor. Other 
returning Lady Demons include: 
forwards, Helen LeFevre (Jr.); 
Tracy Willis (Jr.); Stephany 
Washington (Jr.); Sharon Brown 
(Jr.); Kim Paulk (Soph.); and at 
guard are Sherri Broocks (Jr.); and 
Julie Cassel (Soph). 

Although the leading all time 
scorer, Joan Darbonne, and the 
assist leader, Linda Jones, have 
both graduated, the Lady Demons 
still have plenty of strength and 
experience plus the addition of three 
promising freshmen, Cindy Berry at 
guard-forward, and Johnnie Heard 
and Renee Richard at the guard 

Upcoming scrimmages 
include Fort Polk on Satuday Oct. 
31, and the Booster Club on 
November 3. 

This latter game will begin at 7:30 
and at 6 p.m. there will be a 
reception and "Meet the Lady 
Demons" program in the "N" Club 
Room. Coach Pierson will also tour 
Booster Club members through the 
Lady Demons' facilities. Tickets are 
now on sale at $2 for adults and $1 
for children under 12, all proceeds 
of which will be used to support the 
Lady Demons program. They can 
be ordered from Posey's Sporting 
Goods in Natchitoches or by calling 
Posey at 352-3175.

Demons 34 yards before Mike Sorenson intercepted a pass for Duper and 
returned it 21 yards to the NSU 24. The Bulldogs had a second-and-one at 
the five just four snaps later but a delay penalty eventually forced a Roberto 
Dager 28-yard field goal tha cut through the uprights with 5:07 remaining 
and upped the score to 37-20. P r ompting a mass exodus among the crowd. 
That's when it really got wild. 

Victor Oatis stole the ball way from a Tech defensive back on Powell's 
fourth-and-10 desperation bomb and ended up with a 47-yard gain to the 
Tech 16. The Dogs were flagged for interference in the end zone on the next 
play and Carlton Finister smashed across from the one with 4:12 left and it 
was 37-27 after Quickel's PAT. 

NSU, with no other other choice, opted for the onside kick attempt and 
nearly pulled it off. The ball bounced over the first line of Techmen and 
caromed off another Bulldog, bounded off the shoulder pads of Demon 
Sonny Louis and finally ended up in the grasp of Karl Terrebone at mid- 
field. Then, for once, the Demon defense rose to the occasion. 

Dunigan was sacked by Bud Snodgrass for a nine-yard loss on the third 
down and Tim Ledet led a bevy of Demons in to block Brett Brewer's punt. 
The ball ended up at the Tech 35 and six plays later Powell and friends had 
six points. 

Oatis grabbed a Powell pass for 26 yards down to the three and James 
Walker set in as NSU had 12, then 11, then 10, then 12 players on for the 
two-point conversion pass. Never mind that they finally ended up with 11, 
because a flag for motion wiped out the successful pass to Jerry Wheeler. 

After a time out, the Demons lined up in the wrong formation and Powell 
missed Finister cutting across the field at the five. That left it at 37-33 just 
68 ticks before the end. 

Everybody in the stadium, and that's not saying a lot, knew it was onside 
kick time again. And again, it nearly worked. Clement did a little stutter 
step that befuddled the Tech front line and the ball squirted free at the 'Dog 
40. Three Demons surrounded it, two fell on it, and one had his hands on it 
but still the ball spurted away, this time toward Tech's Austin Kat- 

"I just about fainted," he said later. If he did, he had the ball when he 
collapsed on the 41 with 55 second left. It was history after that, and 
contrary to what you may have heard, history has a cruel way of repeating 
itself quite regularly in the Tech-NSU series. 

"We had our chances. We just couldn't cash in," groaned Williams. 
"Something good has to happen to us. We can't keep going this bad." 

"It was a very hard loss to take," he said. "It always is, but you tend to 
get used to it afte r awhile." 

SL U Next Demon Foe 

Coming off this past weekend's 
37-33 State Fair loss to Louisiana 
Tech, Northwestern ventures to the 
confines of Strawberry Stadium in 
Hammond to face Southeastern 
Louisiana, a squad which boasts the 
best record of all colleges in the 

Both the Demons and the Lions 
had similar games last week, 
however, only one of them came 
away happy. And that team was 

The Lions, lead by quarterback 
Robbie Mahfouz, came up with 29 
fourth quarter points to defeat 
Northeast Louisiana 50-47. In that 
one evening, Mahfouz hit on 15 of 
28 passes for 298 yards, and more 
importantly, five touchdowns. 

In the fourth stanza alone, wide 
receiver David Patterson grabbed 
three scoring tosses from Mahfouz 
of 45, 28, and 17 yards. Patterson is 
(surprise) the top receiver in '81 for 
SLU with 22 catches for 330 yards 
and five scores. 

Saturday's game with Northeast 
was an exception for the Lions due 
to the fact that they have not aired 
the ball out much this season. 

And why haven't they thrown this 
season, up until last week? Because 
SLU coach Oscar Lofton has a bevy 
of running backs. ..Mack Boatner 
heads the rushing attack with 535 
yards and a team-high seven 

touchdowns. Halfback Charlie 
Thomas has 474 yards and fullback 
Greg Domiano has racked up 407 
yards. Those two round out the 
Lion backfield. SLU is averaging 
190 yards on the ground in '81 . 

On defense, Ormando Whitlock, 
Ed Gibson, and Mark Millet lead 
the way. Whidock, is tops in tackles 
with 50. 

This will be the third consecutive 
home game for the Lions, now 6-2 
on the year. 

What do the Demons have to do 
to get a win? All NSU did was gain 
449 total yards, including 299 
through the air, but to no avail. 

Once again, as it was two weeks 
ago, Stan Powell came on in relief 
of Eric Barkley, and did a fine job. 
This week, the quarterback 
situation is up for grabs. It will not 
be known as to who will call signals 
until later in the week. 

If you like all offense and no 
defense, you're going to enjoy this 
one. This will be the first of two 
consecutive road contests for NSU. 
The Demons travel to Thibodaux to 
face Nicholls State on November 7 
before coming to meet Northeast 
Louisiana in the in the season finale 
November 21. 

KDBH-FM will broadcast the 
NSU-SLU matchup beginning at 
6:45 with the pregame. Kickoff is at

Sjoberg Wins Predictions 
For Third Straight Week, 
Amazingly No One Cares 

For a record third straight week, 
Current Sauce Porker Picker Sports 
Editor Bob Sjoberg has come away 
with first place in week's pickings. 

Sjoberg was so happy after his 
record that he immediatly called 
together a press conference to 
announce that he would be ex- 
tending his contract an extra week 
and would receive a substantial raise 
in his three digit salary. ($1.42 a 

Unfortunatley for Bob, the only 
people to show up for his press 
conference was the NSU journalism 
department (population 12) who all 
were required to be there to observe 
and write a funny story. 

With the win, Sjoberg (8-2) 
moved into second place, just one 
game behind Joe Cunningham who 
suffered through yet another 
miserable week by going 6-4 and 
dropping below the .700 percent 
mark for the first time. 

Northwestern noseguard Freeman 
Thomas tied Sjoberg for the in- 
dividual honors for the week by 
going 8-2 also. Free man's scores 
came into the Sauce office under 
suspicious circumstances last week, 
but after several legal manuevers by 
Freeman's attorneys, the scores 
were published. 

Dr. Ray Baumgardner, Alison 
Breazeale, and Dean Napoli, all 
tied for second place with 7-3 

With the record, Baumgardner 
moved into a second place tie with 

David Stamey (6-4) only two games 
behind Cunningham. 

Alison, who has had alot of 
trouble in recent years getting 
confused with Dianna Kemp, has 
demnaded to be placed on the 
Porker Picker regular staff. 

Noting that her two year record as 
a guest selector is 16-4 for an .800 
percent winning mark, Alison said 
that she more than deserved to be a 
regular member. 

" If David Stamey can do it, then 
by gosh, so can anybody!" 

Sjoberg promised Alison that if 
Stamey's winning percentage 
dropped .500, then she would 
automatically qualify to be the next 
regular member. 

When Napoli heard this he 
demanded a regular place for 
himself and girlfriend Wendy 

" As a team Wendy and I 
combined for a .700 percent win- 
ning average, that's a better winning 
average than any Northwestern 
team has had in years. " 

This week the panel welcomes 
three new guests. One, Carl Jones, 
the acting Chief Justice of the 
Student Supreme Court declined 
comment on this week's games 
citing legal precedence, but the 
other two, Lynn Clary and NSU 
field goal kicker 'Dynamite' Dale 
Quickel just decided that they woul 
n't say anything to the Sauce 
reporters because they didn't want 
to waste their time.

Treen, Martin Speak to SGA 

Governor Dave Treen and the 
Student Supreme Court Chief 
Justice put in a surprise appearance 
at the Student Government 
Association meeting of Oct. 26. The 
Senate voted to form a committee to 
look into rumors affecting the 
character of Commissioner of 
Elections Diana Kemp. 

In a brief visit the Governor 
expressed pleasure at the NSU 
campus facilities. Treen felt that the 
facilities should be utilized to their 
full ability, and said that ways of 
doing this were being studied. 

Treen called the SGA "future 
leaders", and added that he had not 
been as sucessful in Student 
Government at Tulane University. 

"I ran for the presidency at 
Tulane and lost", said Treen. 

Noting that the SGA was in the

unintentional laugh by asking

Treen was on hand for a Banquet 
in honor of his mother, Mrs. 
Elizabeth Speir Treen. Mrs. Treen is 
a 1918 graduate of NSU. The 
school was then called Lousiana 
Normal School. 

Chief Justice David "Radar" 
Martin put in a visit to the SGA to 
explain that he had contacted a local 
judge concerning the proper 
procedure for impeachment. 

"If you want to impeach, you 
must bring charges", said Martin, 
adding "I don't care how you go 
about getting the charges" . 

Martin explained that the motion 
to form a committee to make a 

recommendation to impeach was 
not necessary. Martin said that the 
charges could be initiated from the 
Senate floor. 

"This procedure whould stand up 
in the United Stetes Supreme Court, 

if appealled that far", said Martin. 

The Senate opted to form a 
committee to investigate rumors 
concerning the character of 
Commissioner of Elections Diana 

An emergency bill to form the 
committee was introduced by 
Senator David LaVere, and the 
Senate approved it. 

Newly sworn in Senator Ernie 
Cole opposed the bill. "I don't see 
where it's any emergency". 

Cole felt that the previous im- 
peachment attempt had been a 

LaVere explained that the 
committee would look into the 
matter, and make a recom- 
mendation to the Senate. "We may 
not bring charges at all, or we could 
bring charges against someone 
else", said LaVere. 

The bill left the appointment of 
the committee to Vice- President 
Kevin Bartholomew. LaVere was 
appointed as chairman of the Ad- 
Hoc committee. Allison Breazile, 
Deana Grau, Cliff Lopez, Bobby 
Pierce, and Missy Toups were also 
appointed and confirmed by the 

Bartholomew said that it would 
take four to five weeks before the 
matter would be finished one way or 
the other. 

In other actions taken, two bills 
to ask for student fee increases were 
passed, and a bill to prohibit State 
Fair Court nominees from cam- 
paigning was tabled. 

An SGA proposed student fee 
increase of 50 cents for the fall 
and spring semesters, and 25 cents 
for the summer session was re- 
introduced by Todd Moore. 

The bill had previously been 

Cole was opposed to the bill. "I 
think the students are being nickled 
and dimed to death", said Cole.

To HPER Staff 

President Joe Stamey replied that 
the SGA had not had a fee increase 
in 10 years, and that the fees were 
lower than most in the state. 

"It will be up to the students to 
decide", said LaVere. He reminded 
that SGA that the students would 
vote on the matter, and the bill was 

A bill to ask for a 75 cent student 
fee increase for the Argus magazine 
was passed after considerable 

Senator Theresa Sullivan inquired 
as to the necessity of a 75 cent in- 
crease, when the SGA was only 
asking for 50 cents. 

"If they (Argus) want to take the 
chance of getting the increase turned 
down by the students by not asking 
for a reasnable rate, let them", said 
Senator Dean Dapoli. 

The bill originally asked for an 
increase of 25 cents for the summer 
session, in addition to the 75 cent 
increase. It was amended to leave 
out the increase when Napoli 
pointed out that the Argus did not 
publish a summer edition. 

A bill to prohibit campaigning by 
State Fair nominees was introduced 
by Stacey Soileau. 

Ms. Soileau said that she had 
heard reports that the 
Shreveport campuses had put up 
campaign signs for their nominee. 

Ms. Soileau said that State Fair 
Court was an honor court and 
nominees should not campaign. 

"If someone tells their friend to 
vote for them, is that cam- 
paigning?", asked LaVere. 

The bill received favorable 
support, but was tabled over a 
contoversy on the definition of the 
word 'campaign'. 

In other action, Mr. and Miss 
NSU nominations were made, 
biudeius serving on SGA com- 
mittees were approved, and the 
SGA voted to sponor a contestant to

attending summer school to appoint 
a replacement for summer. Any 
legislation passed by the summer 
session SGA would be law. During 
the fall, the SGA would vote on all 
legislation passed during the

said that illness would be the only 
excusable absence from SGA

you have to study, that is not an 
excused absence", said Bar- 

The Free Speech Alley was the 
topic when Parlimentarian Clifton 
Bolgiano said that SGA members 
should speak at the Alley. 

"The students are becoming a 
little bit curious about the SGA. It 
might help if ya'll would get up and 
talk", said Bolgiano. 

Chaplin's Lake received attention 
when President Stamey announced 
that students concerned with the 
future of the lake should contact 
David LaVere.

baccalaureate and master's degrees 
nursing and the master's degree in 

A 21 -member Task Force on 
Academic Excellence that was 
appointed by the state board will 
visit the Northwestern campus in 
November to "look at what the 
university is doing that results in 
excellence," according to task force 
chairman Joseph Davies of Arabi. 

Northwestern had the only 
master's degree program in 
elementary education cited by the 
state board and one of only three 
baccalaureate programs in 
elementary education receiving 
commendation. NSU's master's 

degree programs in microbiology 
and nursing were also the only ones 
in those fields recognized at the 
graduate level. The master's degree 
program in biology and the bac- 
calaureate degree program in 
nursing were among the only two 
programs cited in those academic

of high quality, with a balanced 
emphasis on research, curriculum 
innovations, academic subject

Northwestern's master's degree 
program in biology was described as 
"effectively serving the state as a 
regional center for advanced 
training in biology. The attitude of 
the central administration toward 
the program was found to be ex- 
cellent." Dr. Ray Baumgardner is 
chairman of the Department of 
Biological Sciences at NSU. 

The master's degree program in 
microbiology was recognized for the 
second time in recent months by a 

state education board. The Board 
of Regents earlier awarded the 
commendation of Excellence to the 
Department of Microbiology and

The review team which surveyed 
the master's degree program in 
nursing stated that the "faculty 
should be commended for their 
commitment to attaining ac- 
creditation by the National league 
for Nursing. The fact that they have 
achieved an eight-year accreditation 
is very much to their credit." 

^ The nursing report also stated, 
"The faculty was found to be up to 
date, the breadth of experience is 
large. They are enthusiastic and 
highly capable." 

Dr. Patricia A. Moxley is 
chairman of the master's degree 
program in nursing, and the head of 
the baccalaureate program is Mrs.

Library, Sauce (Again), Lack of Notices 
Blasted at Fourth Free Speech Alley 

The library, The Current Sauce 
and the lack of prior notice to 
campus events came under fire at 
the fourth Free Speech Alley held 
Wednesday in the Student Union 
Lobby from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. 

A serious debate ensued between 
"an older woman coming back to 
school" and a young male student. 
The issue discussed as the library 
and the amount of noise conducive 
to studying. 

She maintained that the library 
has been turned into a play ground 
while its orginal purpose is for 
studying. Her comments were 
answered by a student who had 

previously encountered her com- 
plaints. He explained that the group 
study rooms were in fact for groups 
and discussion was part of the 
studying process. Privacy, he said, 
may be obtained through the use of 
the individual study corrals. 

The Current Sauce took its usual 
shots from the crowd, this time as 
Bob Cleveland pointed out that a 
caption under a front page picture 
was misleading. Pointed out also, 
was the misprint that the "Sigma 
Kappa" house was raided. The 
article should have read Kappa 

"Probably one of the things that 

hurts our entertainment program 
the most is no one knows what the 
hell is going on," brought up Cliff 
Bolgiano in reference to the poor 
attendence at the Kinesis concert. 
"If we're gonna go ahead and spend 
big bucks to get a band here, let's 
get the word out." 

More than one person felt the 
money spent on new doors in the 
post office could have been spent on 
more productive projects As one 
female student pointed out, "I think 
they could spend money on better 
things, like bug spray for my 

The rest of the subjects brought 
up might fall under the category of 

common courtesy. The cross walks 
and the lack of respect for 
pedestrians and bike riders is till of 
major concern. 

Complaints falling on the ad- 
dition were also voiced. Soap opera 
fans were irrate because the talking 
during General Hospital over- 
shadowed the voices of Luke and 

Racist and uncomplimentary 
material written on the bathroom 
walls was also an issue of complaint. 
Following this complaint were 
gripes concerning air conditioning 
in the Student Union Cafeteria and 
the barage of advertisements slipped 
under doors in the dormitories.

A Guest Editorial 

"Cosmic Pickle" 

By Susan Kortenberry 

Because of its controversial 
nature, the subject I would like to 
bring before you today is one that is 
not often mentioned in front of 
young children because of their 
impressionable young minds. Some 
of you may find it shocking others 
of you will be appalled, but many 
feel it is time for the subject to come 
out of the closet. It has been 
ignored and hidden too long. I ask 
you to keep an open mind as you 
read. The purpose of this article is 
to inform you of some of the forms 
of adult entertainment avalaible to 
students on campuses across 

One of the most widespread 
forms of adult entertainment to be 
found is gaining widespread 
popularity. Yes, I'm referring to 
"pickle fights". Of humble origin, 
it all began quietly in a small student 
cafeteria. Soon, neighboring 
campuses began having their own. 
Now public demand is so great that 
plans are in the works to develop 
pickle fights in video form. It is 
tentatively being called "Cosmic 
Pickles". Consequently, prominent 
scientists are predicting that space 
oriented video games such as 
"Space Invaders" could become 
obsolete by late 1985. Quoted one 
scientist ( who asked that his name 
be withheld), "Bye,Bye, Pack 
Man". This craze has also inspired 
other new products, one being the 
pickle shirt. Confident sources are 
saying that Izods are on the way 

Out on the West cost, the latest 
fad is gargling marbles. Yesterday it 
was really big, but recently it kus 
been declining in populartiy due to 
the fact that after an extended 
period of time, the students find they 
have a tendency to lose their 
marbles (pardon the pun), Also 

popular on the West coast jj 
midget diving. This activity may 
soon become an official olympj c 
sport, but, as all sports, it is noi 
without its problems. Some of the 
divers are being accused of having 
deliberately smoked cigarettes 
when they were young to stunt their 
growth so they could qualify to be 
midget divers. Federal mediators 
have been called in to settle the 

For you nature freaks out there, 
there is tree wrestling, and, of 
course the ever popular cricket 
ballet, Cricket ballet was brought 
over to America when some dancing 
crickets defected from East Ger. 
many. Soviet dissidents are no* 
barring all of the crickets from 
traveling out of the country. Tree 
wrestling began when some 
championship wrestlers began 
looking for opponents with some 
intelligence. Robert Redwood from 
California is the current titleholder 
in the heavyweight division. 

So. I suppose you're thinking. 
"Well, what kind of adult en- 
tertainment is there around this 
area?" There are several types of 
adult entertainment that are unique 
to our area. The most popular seems 
to be Column Hopping. Dorm 
Torching is a close second, followed 
by Breathing-by-the Numbers. One 
sport that deserves some recognition 
is Underwater Basket Weaving. 
There are those who call it a fad, 
and say it will pass, but I am undet 
the impression that it is around to 

The next time you find yourself 
sitting around with nothing to do 
but watch Captain Kangaroo, check 
out one of the many forms of adult 
entertainment that I've discussed 
this month. Always remember, it is 
better to have tried and failed than 
to have gotten kicked in the face by 
an angry cow.

good job. She is a hard worker. She 
has proven that in her committee

Rifle Team Travels To Huntsville 

Members of the NSU Rifle team 
traveled to Huntsville, Texas on 
October 23rd and 24th to participate 
in the Sixth Annual Rodeo In- 
vitational Rifle Match. The match, 
sponsored by Sam Houston State 
University is held in conjunction 
with the renoun Texas State Prison 
Rodeo and draws rifle teams and 
individual competitors from across 
the Southeastern and Southwestern 
United States. The NSU Rifle Team 
amassed at team total of 3459 points 

of 4800 possible in a match that 
required each shooter to fire 40 
targets in each of 3 firing positions, 
prone, kneeling and standing. 
Team members from NSU that fired 
in the match were Farron Green, 
Tommy Cook, Kirk Moore and 
Scott Ford. Green was top shooter 
for NSU with 929 score of 1200 
possible. Tommy Cook was a close 
second with 926. The team will 
travel to Thibodaux to fire against 
Nicholls State on November 14th. 

Three of the NSU Rifle Team, 
Farron Greene, John Dalton. and 

Scott Ford practice at the rifle range 
for an upcoming meet.

University Police Chief Lee 
reported a rather uneventful week in 
campus mischief after the hectic 
state fair week. A number of Tech 
students were apprehended last 
week for trying to toilet paper the 
Presidents house. They were 
released after minor discipline from 
President Bienvineau. 

A long with the usual number of 
illegal parking and speeding tickets, 
police officers were alerted on 
several acts of misconduct and 

Caroline Graham informed 
campus security that she was 
"flashed" by a group of guys in an 
old blue pick-up truck. The boys are 
believed to be college students but 
no other infor mation was 

Richard Devane reported the 
theft of some gasoline and Mike 
Monroy claims that a turntable was 
stolen from his room in Nat- 
chitoches Dormitory. 

According to Police Chief Lee, 
the vandalism problem is down this 

week. There have few are no reports 
of tire slashings and other property 
damaging crimes. 

Police are continuing to in- 
vestigate the break-in which oc- 
curred in Caldwell Hall last week. 
"We are working on leads in 
conjunction with outside 
authority's," explained Chief Lee. 
The burglary netted the thi^/es over 
$6,000 worth of office equipment. 
This break-in is very similar to 
break -ins occurring in a near-by city 
and authorities speculate the crimes 
could be related.

"His Light" 

Thursday night at Keyser 
Auditorium the gospel group "His 
Light" performed to an estimated 
crowd of 60 people. The songs they 
performed included "Take Me", 
"Praise The Lord", and "We are 
People of God". 

The band is an eight member 
group from Shreveport. The mem- 
bers of the band are: Kenny Brown- 
vocalist, Ernest Chaney-keyboard, 
Cindy Edmonds-vocalist, Ricky 
Edmonds-vocalist, Dennis Leaky- 
bass guitar, Wayne McCormick- 
guitar, Kevin Richardson- drums, 
and Robert Rissor-sound man. 

The group was formed in 
Shreveport by Ricky Edmonds in 
1976. Since then the band has 
performed in numberous high 
schools, churches, and colleges. 

Edmonds said the band has been 
offered more money to give up 
gospel music and take up other 
forms of music, but Edmonds said 
that those other types of music are 
"not fulfilling". Edmonds added 
that gospel music is the "only music 
that has an answer."

Phi Mu 

Phi Mu's annual Grub Dance, 
held every October, was a great 
success this year. It was held at the 
Jaycee Hall and the Mickey Steel 
Band provided the entertainment. 
This year's theme was "Barnyard 
Bash," and everyone had fun 
dancing-cowboy style. 

Also, on October 29, there was a 
Halloween Party at the Phi Mu 
house. The big sisters and their little 
sisters came dressed alike in 
costumes. Some came as Devo, fig 
newtons, crayons, (don't ask how), 
cowboys, hobo, and gangsters. 

Congratulations to Phi Mu's 
Cindy Duke, Anita Weaver, Alicia 
Haynes, and Kayla Murphy for 
being chosen to represent NSU at 
the State Fair game. 

As far as intramurals are con- 
cerned, the Phi Mu's are still doing 
a great job. So far they are 6-1 in 
flag football. As flag football 
comes to a halt, the Phi Mu's are 
looking forward to an exciting 
volleyball season.

Late this past summer, Northwestern's Coordinator of Intramurals, 
Ginger Parrish, resigned to take a similar position at LSU — S . The In- 
tramural Department was dealt a severe blow. 

Northwestern's Intramural Department was just beginning to assert itself 
as one of the premier intramural departments in this part of the country. 
And when Ginger left, it appeared that the students of NSU were hurt 

Not so. Soon after Ginger left, Tootie Cary, a former member of the 
1 Lady Demons basketball team, and a former women's professional 
basketball player, was appointed to fill the post vacated by Miss Parrish. 
Tootie had big shoes to fill, and questions arose as to how much the In- 
tramural Department would suffer. 

Well, the Intramural Department has not suffered in the least little bit. 
And what's more, it actually seems to have improved. 

When Tootie took over, she took over with the same spark and 
enthusiasm that Ginger took with her to her new job. 

Tootie made new rules, none of which were unreasonable, which made the 
flag football season a much safer one. Broken fingers, and other injuriesnot 
to all uncommon. This year, except for freak accidents when someone just 
falls down and tears up cartilage or something, the injuries haven't been as 
common. The reason? All to often, the injuries resulted 

when tempers flared and emotions were uncontrolled. This year, with the 
institution of strict penalties for such outbursts, the tempers and the injuries 
have been keDt in check. 

However, it's not just the physical side of the games that has met witn 
improvement, it is also the emotional. Tootie and crew have done an ex- 
ceptional job with always having something for the NSU students to do, 
and that something involves not only the so called "jocks" who participate 
in the intramurals, but anybody else who wants to participate can do 

On November 20, the Intramural All-Nighter will begin, and any NSU 
students that want to participate can do so. The all-nighter will be from 8-8, 
that is, evening to morning, and there will be more than plenty of things for 
everybody to do. 

Ginger Parrish set the groundwork for what we feel is one of the finest 
Intramural programs in the South, and with Dianna Marie "Tootie" Cary, 
we haven't lost a step. 

Thoughts while wondering if 
Edwin Edwards' mother is a 
Northwestern graduate... 

...If you noticed lot of smiles on 
the faces of most Roy Hall residents 
last Tuesday morning it was because 
Gov. David Treen's Monday visit to 
NSU went off without a hitch. It 
seemed the only person wearing a 
broader grin Monday night than 
President Rene Bienvenu was the 

Treen was genuinely touched at 
the end of a banquet held Monday 
night to honor his mother, a 1918 
graduate of Louisiana Normal. The 
occasion commemorated the 
establishment of a recurring 
academic scholarship in the name of 
Mrs. Elizabeth Speir Treen. 

The tone of his comments about 
his afternoon tour of the campus 
was particularly encouraging to 
university administrators. Treen 
viewed facilities planned for use in a 
proposed high school for some of 
the state's gifted and talented 
juniors and seniors, and he ap- 
parently liked what he saw. 

The governor told the banquet 
audience he was "impressed very 
much" by the proposal to locate the 
special school at NSU. He also said 
he would include badly needed 
funds for renovation of Fournet 
Hall, the deteriorating chemistry 
building, in next year's capital 
outlay budget. 

The State Board of Trustees has 
passed a resolution urging the gifted 
and talented school be housed at 
Nortwestern. A special ad- 
ministrative board to be appointed 
by Treen will select the most 

economical site for the facility. 

In its last session, the Legislature 
approved a measure laying the 
foundation for the school. The 
legislation was sponsored by state 
Rep. Jimmy Long of Natchitoches. 
Long and NSU Dean of Education 
Robert Alost drew up the plans for 
the program. 

The school could begin 
operations as early as 1983 if the 
Legislature can concur on a funding 
formula next year, Alost said. 

The obvious benefits for NSU if 
the school is located here iare many. 

Outside of putting about 1,000 
badly-needed warm bodies in empty 
dorms, the school would be a great 
laboratory for education majors. It 
would ensure that more than 
average attention from the state 
would be given to capital outlay 
requests from NSU because these 
students would be using university 

The students in a gifted/talented 
program will be allowed to choose a 
major in a specific area and will 
receive a wide range of advanced 
courses, Alost said. It is not 
designed to be an early admissions 
program, he said. Although the 
high schoolers will attend some 
classes with university students, the 
program will have its own faculty, 
administration and director. 

It is a unique, innovative 
proposal. Only two or three other 
states have such programs and none 
of those approach the scope of the 
Long/ Alost plan. 

And best of all for Northwestern, 
it is a program which will be an 
apple in the eye of our ed acation- 

minded governor, judging from his 
reaction during last Monday's 

...Treen toured classrooms at the 
old Natchitoches-Central High 
School campus and examined 
facilities at Fournet Hall and 
Bossier Dormitory as darkness 
approached Monday. Weary from 
a day of travel, he seemed not overly 
enthusiastic about looking at 
another dorm after walking through 

That is easily understood if 
you've ever walked through Bossier. 
But some unknown sould may have 
saved the day, and even the gifted 
and talented school, for Nor- 
thwestern when he suggested the 
governor might want to look at the 
Recreation Complex. 

Treen brightened noticably when 
he learned the complex had a none- 
hole golf course. An irrepressible 
golfer, as neraly all golfers are, he 
hurried his entourage of assistats, 
university personnel and press into 
the vans for the ride to the complex. 

The governor was like a kid on 
Christmas morning when he walked 
into the pro shop. He challenged a 
Baton Rouge television reporter to a 
putting contest and the crowd 
drifted outside to the putting green. 

Treen left both his putts to the 
first hold way short and the TV 
newsman nearly hole both his shots, 
the governor got the best of the 
second hold as he left a long putt 
just a foot short. Confident, he 
announced a $1 wager on the 
outcome of the third and final hole. 

His best effort rolled about 18 
inches past the cup and it looked 
like a draw when the newsman's 

putt stopped just to the side ot 
Treen's ball. But the governor' 
second putt lipped out and the 
newsman knocked his right in to win 
the bet. 

Undaunted, Treen forked over 
the dollar bill with a smile on his 

"I want y'all to know this just 
proves one thing. Leave gambling 
to other governors," he dead- 
panned, earning a roar from the 

...As the above anecdote shows, 
Treen is not the cold, impersonable 
man he is sometimes painted as by 
writers. In a small group or 
especially one-to-one, he is an 
expensive, intensely congenial man 
with a quick wit. 

He hung in there with NSU's 
resident quipster, Jerry Pierce, 
during the evening banquet. Master 
of ceremonies Pierce pointed out 
that Treen deserves credit for 
getting through nearly two years in 
the governor's office with only one 
outfit — a blue blazer and gray 

Treen, who endured several barbs 
about his party affiliation and 
chances for re-election from pierce, 
had an answer for most of them and 
this one in particular. 

He said the former governor 
didn't leave much of anything in the 
mansion when he moved out. As a 
matter of fact, Treen said, about the 
only thin left in the closet was that 
navy blue blazer— "and some rather 
interesting looking garments" that 
he had no use for and had to throw 

David Stamey's Amazin' PointZ' 

The new Student Government 
Association, what has it done for 

"Aw, them guys don't do 
nothing, just titles." 

The Student Government Assn. 
has made some really good ad- 
ditions to its programs and isn't just 
the group that messes up elections. 

The main change in this year's 
program is that the executives have 
cut the budget by over $2,000. 
Much of the reduction has been in 
the form of scholarships, to the 
executives that made the cuts. 

One of the programs brought 
about this semester is the highly- 
successful Free Speech Alley. This 

Radical Rag 

program was brought about as a 
service to the student and a way for 
them to publicly voice their 

The Free Speech Alley didn't cost 
the students a dime, just a little hard 
work from the organizers and the 
moderator, Clifton Bolgiano. 

When 200 students showed up at 
the first Alley, everyone was 
overwhelmed, but the interest has 
remained and the Alley has proved 
to be very popular with the student 

The greatest program started 
could prove to be the Free Legal 
Service. The students can receive 
free legal advice on anything. 
Appointments will be made at the 

SGA office, and the lawyers will be 
on campus once a week. 

The SGA's part in the 
Homecoming and State Fair ac- 
tivities was also very successful. 
The parties held during the week 
were very well attended, and for the 
mass quantities of beer consumed, 
all who were there were well 
behaved, which surprised the hell 
out of the administrator's at- 

The SGA also foots the bill for 
the Distinguished Lecture 
Series... you know, the thing that 
gets you out of class every once in a 

The move is on to promote better 
attendance at the lectures and bring

They are also looking into the 
possibility of bringing in Louisiana 
politicians to lecture. I mean, I 
would go see a Edwin Edwards- 
Dave Treen extravaganza before 
some man who wrote a best-seller in 

Other interesting possibilities 
would be Russell Long or Bennett 

All this action leads to one thing, 
increased costs. The present SGA 
will have to get by with the $2.75 
they now receive. Help the future 
SGA's and vote "yes" for the 50- 
cent increase. 

Governor Treen made a visit to 
Natchitoches last week, and by now 
everybody knows why. Because his 
mother is a graduate of NSU. 

Well, on second thought, he did 
have another reason for touring this 
whole area of the state. Something 
about inspecting future lignite 
production areas. So he just hap- 
pened to be in the area, and thought 
he'd stop by. 

Well now. A new industry in our 
neck of the woods. That's 
something to be excited about. 
Industry brings jobs, and jobs bring 
money, and the process is good for 

Let's analyze that thought. 
Lignite industry. Webster's Dic- 
tionary defines lignite as a soft, 
brownish coal. 

Now that we know that the in- 

dustry we are dealing with is coal 
mining, let's get down to basics. 
Governor Treen said, "The lignite 
industry will cast some burden on 
you, but in doing that you'll be 
supporting the whole state". 

I wonder what burdens Treen was 
talking about. Could it be polluted 
water and air. Could it be the cruel 
process of stripping nature's very, 
core to a naked, ugly wasteland? 

Or could it be the spread of a coal 
disease called Black Lung? Well, 
friends, if that's the burden, that's a 
hell of a burden. As far as sup- 
porting the whole state, let the rest 
of the state fend for themselves. 
Two healthy lungs are too great of a 
price to pay in my book. 

The negative thoughts are en- 
dless. Too often a community 
rushes into a "hard sell" by 
politicians. The people find out, too 

late, they have been shortchanged 

When plans for the Country Pride 
Plant were laid out, did anyone stop 
and ask, "What will our air smell 
like in the mornings. Will we smell 
dead chicken instead of clean, fresh 

Or was Natchitoches given a 
hard-sell by a few who stood to gain 
big bucks from the venture? 

Well, Country Pride is here, and 
they aren't going to go away. 
Neither is the smell in the air. 

I realize that jobs are hard to 
come by in Natchitoches and the 
surrounding areas. I also realize that 
jobs bring money. But stop and 
think, at what price. 

We are living in one of the most 
beautiful parts of the county. The 
history that has been so well 
preserved brings in bie Tourist 


How many people want to see a 
historic strip-mined site? 

Natchitoches, how much money 
does it take to buy a forest. How 
much does a towering, majestic 
river bank cost. Most of all, how 
much does a healthy lung cost? 

Just because the Governor toured 
possible lignite production centers 
does not mean that Natchitoches 
will become an ugly scar on the face 
of the earth. But a test pit > s 
presently being drilled four mile 5 
west of Coushatta. Will Coushatta 
become an ugly brown scar? 

Yes, the time has come for this 
community to realize the true value 
of a hard sell, and of a sleepy little 
town called Natchitoches.

NSU Dumped by Southeastern , Travel to Nicholls Saturday 

Southeastern Louisiana came up 
with yet another fourth quarter rally 
and defeated Northwestern 21-16 in 
Hammond Saturday evening. 

Held in check for three periods by 
an inspired Demon defense, SLU 
rallied for a pair of fourth quarter 
scores to up its record to 7-2. The 
Demons, held under 20 points for 
the first time in 1981, dropped to 2- 

The Lions got their winning 
touchdown with 6:12 left in the 
contest when quarterback Robbie 
Mahfouz hit tight end Leslie 
Jackson with a 27 yard strike over 
the middle. 

SLU, who came back to beat 
Northeast Louisiana 50-47 last 
week, needed to rally because NSU 
fullback Carlton Finister had given 
the Demons a 16-14 cushion with 
8:59 remaining on a seven yard 
burst. For the game, Finister rushed 
20 times for 1 18 yards. 

NSU had one final opportunity to 
pull the victory. The Demons, 
thanks to a 37 yard kickoff return 
by Michael Richardson, receive 
excellent field position to begin their 

final drive. 

From its own 38, Northwestern 
moved to the Lion 36. But then 
SLU came up with the defensive 
play of the contest. On the third 
and six situation, Sterling Joseph 
sacked Stan Powell for a seven yard 
loss. Then, on fourth down, 
Powell's pass to Victor Oatis was 
underthrown. SLU took over and 
ran off the remaining 1:32 to seal 
the verdict. 

While the Demons held the Lion 
ground game in check, the aerial 
combination of Mahfouz to David 
Patterson was the difference. 
Mahfouz hit on 17 of 24 attempts 
for 322 yards, while Patterson set a 
school record with 234 yards on nine 

"Our secondary just didn't do 
what it had to do," NSU coach 
A.L. Williams stated. "Everyone 
else did. Our defense against the 
run was outstanding and I'm very 
proud of the effort the kids came 
through with." 

The first half turned out to be the 
defensive battle no one expected. 

With the score knotted at 0-0 

midway through the initial first 
period, SLU mounted its first 
scoring threat. And the Demons 
turned them back... After Mahfouz 
hooked up with Patterson for a 42 
yard gain that placed the ball on the 
NSU 2, for consecutive rushing 
plays netted nothing and the 
Demons took over. Gary Reasons 
led the goal line stand with three 

The Lions picked up their only 
score of the first half with 9:34 to go 
in the second quarter. The 
touchdown came on a 15 yard 
Mahfouz to Patterson pass. 

After the two squads traded 
fumbles, NSU put together its best 
drive of the half which culminated 
in Dale Quickel's 32 yard field goal. 

The Demon defense held SLU to 
just 91 yards rushing, but the 
passing of Mahfouz ran the total 
offense mark to 413 on the night. 

Along with Finister's 118 yards 
on the ground, LeRoy Ellis rushed 
for 60 more. In the passing 
department, Powell ended up with 
16 completions in 30 attempts for 
190 yards and one score. Top NSU 

receivers for the game were James 
Bennett with five catches for 72 
yards. Jerry Wheeler accounted for 
the other Demon score, a 15-yard 
touchdown reception from Stan 
Powell in the third stanza. 

Northwestern will try again to 
snap what is now a five game losing 
streak when they travel to Nicholls 

The Demons take a 2-6 record 
into this Saturday's clash at 
Thibodaux against the Colonels, 
who are 4-4 following a 55-18 
thrashing at the hands of Northeast 

At present time, both squads 
boast strong offenses and suspect 
defenses, although there may be 
some hope for the NSU forces... The 
Demon defense held Southeastern, a 
team which racked up 50 points the 
previous week against Northeast, to 
three scores. 

Nicholls State is bolstered on 
offense by quarterback Gordon 
Falgoust, who at one time lead all 
Division I-AA signal-callers. Not 
including the NLU contest, Falgoust , 
was second in I-AA passing ef- 

ficiency with 93 completions in 170 
attempts for 1,502 yards and 17 

By far, the Colonels' top receiver 
in '81 is Dwight Walker. The 5'10, 
188 pound senior has grabbed 34 
passes for 648 yards. Other pass 
catchers with more than 10 
receptions include Marvin Dumas 
(Who is NSU's answer to Victor 
Oatis, with a 23.0 average per 
catch), Alan Pieard, Oscar Smith, 
and William Moore. 

Although Nicholls will not run 
the ball often, they do have 
someone that can be relied upon to 
carry the rushing burden~and that 
is Smith. The 5-11, 195-pound 
freshman has a very respectable 4.4 
yard per carry average. 

Top Colonels on defense include 
240-pound nose guard Arthur 
Tolliver; end Perry Boudoin; and 
safety Greg Harding, who was 
second in the nation in interceptions 
with nine during the 1980 campaign. 

It's been either feast or famine for 
Nicholls this season. 

There have been only a pair of 
close games that involved the 

Colonels: A 31-27 win over Texas 
Southern and a 26-23 defeat at the 
hands of Troy State. The remaining 
six contests have been blow outs, 
going either way. Among the 
"blowout" victories was a 56-14 
decision over Southern, while on the 
other side of the ledger, one of the 
losses came at home to McNeese 
State 59-9. 

Who will be the starting quar- 
terback for the Demons this week? 
Stan Powell got the nod against 
SLU and was not effective, so 
chances are that Eric Barkley will- 
get the call. 

No major changes are expected 
for either club, who are anxious to 
get back on the winning trail this 
week. Nicholls will attempt to snap 
a two game string. 

Next weekend, NSU has open 
date which will give them extra time 
to prepare for its season finale with 
Northeast Louisiana, November 21 
at Turpin Stadium.

The independent Purple division ended in a three way tie as the Steelers, 
the University of Yang, and Conine all ended the regular season with 5-1 
records and one win over one of the other teams involved in the tie. 

The tie was broken by total points scored in the games involving the three 
teams. The Steelers ended up in first, Univ. of Yang is second, and Conine 
in third.

with one minute remaining to provide the winning margin in a 12-6 victory

Panel Has Seven- Way Tie; 
Sjoberg Under Investigation 

For the first time in the entire 
history of the Current Sauce Porker 
Picker panel, and other sub- 
sideriaries, there has been a seven- 
way tie for first place in the weekly 
rankings of the predictors. 

All four regular panelists, Bob 
Sjoberg, David Stamey, Dr. Ray 
Baumgardner, and Joe Cun- 
ningham, and all three celebrity 
panelists, Lynn Clary, Dale 
Quickel, and Carl Jones, sported 
identical 7-3 records for the week. 

Stamey, who probably has more 
tenure here than most NSU 
teachers, and who has seen more 
than his share of Prediction Panels 
come and go was thunderstruck by 
the news of the seven-way tie. 

"Never in all my years have I 
witnessed such an incident as this." 

Stamey was furious that, with the 
exception of Sjoberg, everyone had 
somehow, someway, picked the 
same teams to win every single 

"Obviously there is a discrepency 
here," Stamey said, and with the 
help of the Student Supreme Court, 
I aim to see what the devil has 

Dr. Baumgardner was equally 
incensed over the apparent 

"Something is definitley wrong 
here," he said. He went on to 
elaborate, "I make my picks very 
carefully the Sunday after the last 
week's ballgames have been played. 
I see who has won, and who has 
lost, and then I check point 
spreads, injuries, coaching changes, 
and I make a very in-depth obser- 
vation of the team's cheerleaders. 
Then and only then do I make my 
picks. And you are trying to tell me 
thatfive other people who are 
without the scientific approaches 
that I employ, had the exact same 
picks as I did? You've got to be 

Cunningham was in a state of 
utter confusion, and although no 
one noticed anything different 
about him, Jones, who is the acting 
Student Supreme Court Chief 
Justice, asked him if the Porker 
Picker Panel would like to press 
charges against anybody in this 

Cunningham and Stamey then 
conferred quietly in the corner, and 

Stamey announced that a full in- 
vestigation of Bob Sjoberg should 
be forthcoming. Sjoberg was 

"Gosh you guys," he began, 
' "how could you think that I had 
anything to do with this tie?" 

"It isn't the tie we're investigating 
Sjoberg, it's you!" 

"Me," Sjoberg cried, "gosh, 
what have I done?" 

"You fixed all of our picks to 
look the same, and then you picked 
three games different from ours in 
hopes that you could take the lead in 
the overall predictions race." 

"No, no, no, "Sjoberg said. 

"Yes, yes, yes, "Stamey an- 

"And what's more, "Cun- 
ningham added, "We're going to 
expose you and make sure that you 
never work in this state again." 

"What are you going to do?" 
Sjoberg asked. 

"We are going to do you just like 
we do everybody else who makes the 
slightest mistake at Northwestern. 
We are going to put your picture on 
the front page of the Sauce, write 
bad editorials about you, and 
implecate you in various scandals 
dating back four and five years." 

"Oh no, I'm ruined, "Sjoberg 
said, and then he ran out of the 
meeting and into the night. 

Clary had her bloodhound, 
Beauregaurd, ready to track Sjoberg 
down, but Quickel, accidentally, 
broke his back legs as he was 
practicing extra-point kicks in the 

This week the Porker Pickers 
welcome with open arms and 
complete joy,Amy Nell Padgett, Neil 
Evans, and Linda Cooksey. 

Evans was added to the panel late 
in the week by Jones to act as an 
undercover panelist. Evans is 
presently a member of the Student 
Supreme Court, and Jones wanted 
some evidence in the Sjoberg case. 
Sjoberg hasn't been since the last 
meeting, but his scores were flown 
in by Federal Express. 

Contrary to popular opinion, 
Amy Nelland Linda were not added to 
the panel just to be another pretty 
face. The four- man Board that 
selects and revues potential guest 
panelists said that they had more 
than pretty faces. Much, much 

Demons to Host 
Mexican Nationals 

It won't be the Indiana Hoosiers, 
but Northwestern's basketball team 
will be facing a national champion 
in its pre-season exhibition game 
against Mexico November 10 in 

The Demons will play the 
University of Juarez, the college 
team that won the national 
basketball title in Mexico last season 
with a 28-9 overall record. The 
Juarez, Chiwawa based team is 
coached by Churck Skarshaug, last 
year's Mexico Coach of the Year. 

The Demons were originally 
scheduled to meet an English team 
cancelled its American tour. The 
pre-season game in Prather 
Coliseum is being sponsored by the 
Natchitoches Lions Club. 

The Mexico team won its Nor- 
thern Division championship last 
season with a 14-2 mark and then 
went on to win the national title. 
Four lettermen return from that 

talented players, just not as many as 
last year. I would expect us to get 
better as the season goes along." 
play any position on the floor for 
us," noted Skarshaug. 

Last season was the first at the 
Juarez school for Skarshaug, who 
coached before that in Columbia, 
South America. Earlier in his 
coaching career Skarshaug was the 
head basketball and baseball coach 
at Kalamazoo Valley Community 
College in Kalamazoo, Mich. 

Skarshaug coached the Mexico 
team in the World University Games 
last summer in Romania, leading his 
team to a seventh place finish. "We 
were in with the United States, 
Canada and the Soviet Union. We 
only lost one game to a team outside 
of our bracket." 

Skarshaug will send his team 
against nine universities across the 
South on the tour in the United

Plimton's efforts to try out for 
quarterback of the Detroit Lions in 
the National Football League, and 
his reward came when he was 
allowed to quarterback the team for 
a few plays in an exhibition game.

one of this country's best sports 
books, but was also made into a 
major motion picture in which 
Plimton stars as himself.

Illustrated magazine, Plimpton once 
pitched to a team of major league 
baseball all- stars. The experience 
became the basis for the book, 
"Out of My League".

Professional Golf Association 
tournaments to collect material for 
"The Bogey Man", and his ob- 

servations of professional football 
can also be found in another of

Miss McAlister is presently 
studying vocal composition with Dr. 
William A. Hunt, associate 
professor of music and director of

also studied music theory and

Louisiana State University in Baton 

The NSU senior is the daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. William S. McAlister 
of Natchitoches. She is a 1976 
graduate of Lafayette High School 

It was a showdown between the 
Current Sauce and the NSU student 
body at the weekly Free Speech 
Alley and when the smoke cleared, 
Sauce editor Joe Cunningham was 
still standing. 

In response to the many requests 
to bring complaints personally to 
the paper's editor, Cunningham 
agreed to speak before the Alley 
crowd and to answer their questions. 

"Why are there no classifieds?" 
asked a voice. Joe explained that the 
Sauce would run classifieds and had 
requested them at semester's 
beginning and had received no 

The second question concerned 
the caption appearing under a front 
page picture that led readers to 
believe that the photo of Kaye 
Henley had been taken at the Rally 
in the Alley when in actuality the 
picture had been taken in the 
Student Union. 

"What happened was a com- 
munication problem. When the 
picture was brought down to the 
Times, there was no slug on it. I 
assummed since Kaye had on a state 
fair t-shirt and it was with a lot of 
other Rally pictures that it was 
taken there. It was not a deliberate 
attempt. I mean we didn't say, 
we'll take this picture here and tell 
everyone we took it at the rally. I 
just assummed it had been taken 
under the bridge," expounded the 

Diana Kemp held up a past issue 
of the Sauce and asked Cunningham 
why, in the same issue did two 
conflicting stories appear about the 
impeachment proceedings brought 
against her. The front page headline 
was announcement of her im- 
peachment. On the editorial page 
was a story concerning the reversal 
of this decision. Ms. Kemp felt that 
the reversal should have taken 
presidence over the impeachment. 

The reversal decision, Cun- 
ningham answered did not come in 
until late Monday night after the 
front page had already been laid 
out. The editorial contained the 
news of the decision to withdraw 
impeachment proceedings because 
David Stamey attended the SGA 
meeting that night and then wrote 
the article late Monday night for the 
Tuesday edition. It is impossible, 
the editor explained, to type all copy 
late Monday night for a paper to be 
printed early Tuesday morning. 

It was at this point that the 
friendly gun play turned to serious 
dueling. Kemp pressed Cunningham 
as to why the Sauce did not run a 
lengthy article stating the im- 
peachment proceeding had been 
overturned. She felt more publicity 
had been given to the impeachment 
than to the reversal. 

"Did I or Did I not give you an 
oppurtunity to give me a full in- 
terview and you declined?" 
countered Cunningham. Ms. Kemp 

began an explanation when Joe 
stopped her with a curt "Yes or 
No?" "Yes," conceded Diana. 
"Yes." restated the editor, "Next 

The rest of the hour long rally was 
anti-climatic. Charles Powell of the 
Natchitoches municipal government 
spoke for a few moments about the 
city's efforts to clean up Chaplin's 
lake. He urged all NSU students to 
write Rep. Long or Sen. Kelly 
requesting that funds be ap- 
propriated for the lake's clean-up. 

The amendment asking for a fee 
increase was also brought up. Dean 
Napoli stepped forward to say that 
the SGA had approved the bill but 
the amendment would be put before 
the student body for a vote before 
any increase would be intiated. 

A number of representatives of 
organizations including Argus, and 
the cheerleaders came forward to 
explain what the added money 
would be used toward. 

Guest speakers at the Free Speech 
Alley may become a regular feature. 
Colgiano announced that Coach 
Williams and President Bienvenu 
had agreed to speak sometime in the 
future. Wednesday, Nov. 11 campus 
polic chief Lee will speak along with 
Natchitoches Sheriff Norm Flet- 

Jack Pace, Head of the uepari- 
ment of Agriculture, announced 
Wednesday, Nov. 4 at the Free 
Speech Alley that a gate will be 

constructed on the lower end of 
Chaplin's Lake. 

The gate is being built in hope of 
ending the theft and vandalism that 
the campus farm has been ex- 
periencing this semester. The gate 
will close off the area past the 
Jefferson-Tarlton Drive intersection 
from 5 pm until 6 am, said Pace. 

"It's been approved up to the 
President," explained Pace. "I 
intiated it to cut down on traffic. I 
don't think its students, but that's a 
public road and you can't make sure 
its only students going down there." 

Pace said the farm had los eight 
hogs, three meat grinders, a spray 
rig, and tires and axles from a horse 
trailer. This loss accumulated from 
just the fall semester is estimated at 

Besides the thefts there have also 
been cases of vandalism and abuse 
to the animals. "We've pulled 
arrows out of hogs where people 
have shot arrows into them," said 

The gate will cost an estimated 
$200 and materials have already 
been ordered for its construction. It 
is exprected to be in ilace by the 
Thanksgiving Holidays unless an 
alternative solution is proposed. 

"I'm reluctant to put them up 
because I don't think the student 
body will approve. That's the 
reason I came today. The gate will 
be put up unless they can come up 
with some alternative means," 
finished Pace.

Linda Nicholas Makes Iberville 
A Little More Tolerable 

by Jenny Whitaker 

Linda Nicholas, SAGA Food 
Service Manager of Iberville, plays 
an important role in the life of a 
Northwestern State University 

It all began in 1973 when Linda 
accepted a student worker job under 
SAGA in the cafeteria at University 
of Evansville in Indiana. One year 
later she was promoted to student 

Since 1973, Linda has made many 
upward moves. Before coming to 
NSU she has managed other college 
cafeterias such as. Asbury College 
and Thomas More in Ken- 
tucky. University of Cincinnati in 
Ohio, and Saint Mary's Dominican 
College in New Orleans. 

SAGA's main office in Monlo 
Park, California. When asked if she 
•would ever work in the main office 
Linda said. "No. I like to be in- 
volved with the customers''. She 
continued. "I also enjoy being a 
part of the community". 

Linda has brought about 
numerous changes in Iberville 
cafeteria. She has not only offered 
the students a better choice of food, 
but also a friendlier atmosphere in 

Whenever you walk into the 
dining hall you will see Linda 
talking to the students. She is always 
available for gripes about the food 
or just a casual conversation. 

Linda serves an average of 2200 
meals a day, seven days a week. Of 
course she gets complaints on a 
daily basis because Linda explained, 
"They (the students) will never be 
totally satisfied". 

She listens to every complaint and 
offers her view on each individual 
problem. In answer to students 
complaints Linda said, "If you are 
honest with them they can not help 
but understand". 

SAGA's meals are based on 
nutritional value and are planned in 
advance by a staff dietician in 

Each student is offered a 
nutritious meal every sitting, but 
Linda said, "It depends on what the 
students choose from the line. If 
they pick the right foods then they 
would have a completely balanced 
meal". Linda also added that the 
choice of the many food items is the 
students responsibility. 

During the semester Linda 
schedules food "specials" and 
"monotony breakers" to lift the 
students spirits. Linda has four of 
five specials during the semester and 
numerous monotony breakers. 

Food specials are seasonal meals 
like Linda's Thanksgiving buffet, 
Christmas buffet, Easter buffet, 
Parent's Day buffet, and most 
recently a Halloween party. 

They also include a Midnight 
breakfast which begins the NSU— 
Tech week of events and another 
popular special is the Strawberry 
breakfast. The most favorite special 
Linda recently had was a nine-ounce 
Rib-eye cookout over a charcoal 
grill. . 

Linda adds monotony breakers 
throughout the semester to add to 
the satisfaction of the student and to 
let them know t at she understands 
the monotony of classes and 
college in general. Some of the 
monotony breakers she has offered 
in the past include a sundae bar, 
personal cupcake decorating, a taco 
bar, outdoor picnics, and a pasta 
bar consisting of different kinds of 
noodles and sauces. 

Other specials Linda will be 
having are an Oriental Ex- 
travaganza and an Italian Heritage 
night. The popular Final's Study 
Hall will be back in swing starting 
dead week. 

The Final's Studly Hall provides 
the students with a quiet atmosphere 
for studying or cramming.

Reports of Vandalism on the Increase 

Vandalism is still running 
rampant on Northwestern's 
Campus. There were two reports of 
vandalism this week. The incidents 
involved a robbery at the airport 
and vandalism of a car in the 
Caspari parking lot. 

On November 2, Wayne Van 
reported to Campus Security that on 
November 1 someone had kicked his 
1976 white Ford LTD with boots 
and left dents. The incident occured 
at approximately 12:30 am on Nov. 

On November 4 at 11:30 Campus 
Security received a call from Larry 
Varnado, Head of Aviation Science 
Department. Varnado reported that 

someone had stolen $60.00 from the 
NSU building at the airport.

What Are Those Two Concrete 
Blocks At Roy Hall? 

By Sonja Henry 
SAUCE Ass't Editor 

How many of you have walked 
past Roy Hall and wondered what 
the two blocks of concrete on the 
lawn were? 

If you were a student who notices 
such things, you weren't alone, 
because even some administration 
members of that building were 
puzzled as to the purpose of the 

A phone call led the investigative 
staff of the SAUCE to Mr. Rivers 
Murphy of the Art Department. 

Dr. Murphy said that the blocks 
were a class project of an art class 
several years ago. "Our attempt was 
to put something out for people to 
respond to. It didn't matter if they 
loved it or hated it, Just so long as 
they responded", said Murphy. 

Murphy explained the class 
needed a place to exhibit their work 
that they had worked on all 
semester. He said that he obtained 
permission from the administration 

Murphy had hopes of placing 
more of the students work around 
the campus. He said that at this time 
the limited facilities of the Art 
Department prevented sculptors of 
that kind as most of the equipment 
was in storage. 

"When we move into the new 
building, we might be able to rotate 
the work around other areas of the 
campus", said Murphy. 

The new Arts and Sciences 
building is slated for completion 
sometime this summer. 

"The blocks have no journalistic 
or social statement", said Murphy 
adding "...They can be hauled off 
at any time" . 

to display the art on the campus. 

"The students got a bum deal 
beuse they have no gallery or exibit 
place", said Murphy. He added 
"It's kind of like, if you play the 
piano, you want to give a recital".

Fine Arts Committee Sponsors Dinner Theater 

The Fine Arts Committee of the 
Student Union Governing Board is 
sponsoring a Dinner Theater 
featuring the Alpha Omega Players 
in Neil Simons "Chapter Two." 

The plot for "Chapter Two" was 
derived from Neil Simon's own 
experience of falling in love and 
remarrying in a matter of months 
after the death of his beloved first 
wife. It was his 16th stage work, 
completed in 1977 and immediately 
purchased for film production, even 
before the play was cast and put into 

The hero of this play is a 
moderately successful novelist who 
is gripped by despondence after the 
death of the woman he had loved 

through 12 years of marriage. 
Because he is unable to pick up the 
threads of his life, his younger 
brother sets up exotic dates for him, 
all of which turn into disasters. 
Then, as a result of misdialing a 
phone number, he meets a recently 
divorced woman and falls in love 
only to feel guiltridden over the 
prospect of happiness with another 

"Chapter Two," was first 
presented in Los Angeles in Oc- 
tober, 1977. Rather than put the 
production into Simon's own 
Broadway Theatre, the Eugene 
O'Neill, it was housed in the much 
larger Imperial Theatre to better 
profit from Simon's enormous 

audience appeal. 

The critical reception was 
favorable and the play continued 
running for over two years, through 
December 8, 1979, for a total of 857 
performances. It was nominated for 
a Tony Award for Best Play of the 
1977-78 Season and won a place on 
Time Magazine's list of the Year's 
Best Plays. 

The Alpha Omega Players will 
begin their performance at 7:30 
p.m. in the Student Union 
Ballroom. Tickets are two dollars 
for full time NSU students with and 
ID and seven dollars for anyone 
else. They may be purchased in 
room 214 of the Student Union. 

Rodeo Team Challenges NIRA 

The NSU ROTC Corps of Cadets 
will conduct a Retreat Ceremony at 
5 p.m. on Wednesday the 11th of 
November. The ceremony will be 
held to honor all veterans that have 
served in America's Armed Ser- 
vices. The Natchitoces community, 
NSU students, faculty, and staff 
and all veterans are invited to at- 
tend. The ceremony will be held by 
the NSU Flagpole, across from the 
Student Union Building. 

Associate Professor 

Dr. Carles E. Railsback, a 
classroom teacher and ad- 
ministrator in Illinois public schools 
for the past 23 years, has been 
appointed associate professor of 
elementary education at Nor- 

Railsback served the past two 
years as superintendent of schools in 
Oak Park, 111. He was previously 
assistant superintendent of schools 
in La Grange, 111., for 10 years. 

The new NSU professor's 
educational experience also includes 
11 years in the Iowa City com- 
munity schools system, where he 
was director of curriculum for four 
years, elementary principal for four 
years and sixth-grade teacher for 
three years. 

He earned a bachelor's degree in 
music education from Central 
College in Kansas, and was awarded 
master's and doctoral degrees in 
elementary education from the 
University of Iowa. 

Railsback holds membership in 
several professional organizations, 
including Phi Delta Kappa, the 
International Reading Association, 
the National Education Association 
and the American Association of 
School Administrators. 

After only two rodeos, one of the 
National Intercollegiate Rodeo 
Association's newest member— the 
NSU Rodeo Team is successfully 
challenging the "super powers" of 
the NIRA's Southern Region. 

And "the new kid in the arena" 
returns to action this weekend when 
NSU competes in Stephen F. Austin 
University's intercollegiate rodeo 
Friday and Saturday, Nov. 6-7, in 
Nacogdoches, Tex. 

The latest NIRA Southern Region 
men's division standings show 
Northwestern in third place as a 
team behind the season leader, 
McNese State University of Lake 
Charles, La., and second-place Sam 
Houston State University of 
Huntsville, Tex. Only 52.5 points 
separate NSU from the leader. 

Northwestern presently claims the 
season leader in two events, as Billy 
Frey of Eunice, La., is leading the 
saddle bronc riding and Brian 
Thomas of Natchitoches is in first 
place in the team roping standings. 

If he remains free of injuries, 
Frey could win his third consecutive 

Southern Region saddle bronc 
championship and earn a third 
appearance in the College Rodeo 
National Finals. We won his first 
two regional titles competing for 
Hill County Junior College in 
Hillsboro, Tex. 

This year Frey, who ranked ninth 
in the NIRA saddle bronc com- 
petition at the end of the 1980-81 
season, won first place in the long- 
go at Corsicana, Tex., Oct. 9-10, 
and at Uvalde, Tex., Oct. 15-17, he 
was second in the long go-around, 
first in the short-go finals and also 
won the two-head average. 

Thomas, who won second-place 
money in the third go-round of the 
Louisiana Rodeo Association 
Finals' steer wrestling last weekend 
in Shreveport, leads the team roping 
standings after winning fourth in 
the event at Corsicana and taking 
first place in the short-go finals and 
also the average at Uvalde. 

Thomas, a former national 
champion calf roper, also stands in 
fourth place in the Southern 
Regions' calf roping and all-around 


Besides Frey, Northwestern also 
features durable Jeff Bourgeois of 
Church Point, La., in saddle bronc 
riding. Bourgeois, who split second 
and third place in the final go-round 
of the professional LRA Finals' 
saddle bronc event, is tied for eighth 
place in this event. 

In bareback bronc riding, 
Northwestern has three contestants 
in the top 10. Bourgois, who was 
second in the second go-round in 
this event at the LRA Finals, is in 
sixth place and in a three-way tie for 
eighth in Bret Bollich of Eunice. 
Porter Craig of Zachary is in a 
three-way tie for 10th. 

Behind Thomas in team roping 
for the year is NSU's Mark Frey of 
Morganza, ranked /fourth in the 
event. At the LRA Finals, Mark 
was fourth in the first go-round and 
fourth in the averge . 

In women's competition, Rhonda 
Brazil of Rayville is seventh in 
barrel racing and Telena Hines of 
DeRidder is in a two-way tie for 
ninth in breakaway roping. In the 
women's standing, NSU is eighth.

iPhi Mu House Gets New Look for Fall Semester 


Students returning to NSU this 
§fall have probably noticed that the 
J hi Mu house on Greek Hill looks 
totally different than the previous 
semester. No, the Phi Mus did not 
3uy a brand new house. 
Instead they remodeled this 
^summer, and the house now looks 
|like a brand new house. 

3 For those who don't remember, 
the house was a beige and brown 
color. It was also in great need of 
Remodeling because the paint was 

chipping badly. 

This past summer was spent 
making plans and getting the house 
fixed up. At Workshop, most of the 
time was spent cleaning the house, 
trimming hedges, and planting new 

provements, some were made to the 
interior of the house. A new central $ 
air condiditioning and heating 
system was put in. New wallpaper 
was hung in the kitchen and 

An open house was held on Oct. 3 
for parents and friends to show off 
The house was also repainted and the newhouse. 
is now a slate blue with white trim. 

The main attraction thought, is 
the colonial porch that was added to 
the house. 
In addition to these 


A special thanks goes to the 
parents of Kim Crawford for 
donating the new carpet, and to the 
parents of Clare Campbell for 
donating new curtains.

Disecting The Amendments 

Did you like Biology when you 
were in high school? Did you get to 
disect any little creatures? That was 
always my favorite part of high 
school. Of course, I never would' 
have cut into a live animal, but we 
used to get pickled frogs and peel 
them apart to see what made them, 
tick. • . 

'"ell., then I graduated to college 
ana my disecting days were over. 
Yes, it was a little depressing, but 
then I was taught a whole new kind 
of disecting, disecting math 
problems. But then again, disecting 
sixteenth square roots wasn't as fun 
as the NSU handbook made it out to 

I was looking for something really 
fun and exciting to disect. when I 
ran across the SGA Amendments in 
the SAUCE, (yes, Virginia, 
somebody really does read that 
teeny tiny print with the SGA 
headline on it). 

I noticed that every o ne of the 
amendments was asking me to fork 
over some money for some fee 
increases. Well, this oppurtunity 
was too good to pass up. Get out the 
old scapel and X — acto knives and 
lets start cutting this stuff up. 

The first amendment asks us to 
"donate" 50 cents to the SGA each 
fall and spring and 25 cents in 
the summer. 

Well, personally, I feel that the 
SGA has been lacking something, 
and that if a mere 50 cents extra on 
my part could help, then that's the 
very least that I could do for them. 
Maybe they could spend their 
money on a' good professional public 
relations person to improve their 
image. (After the SGA is through 
with him, then maybe the SAUCE 
could borrow him for a while). 

Of course, the SGA does have a 
lotof good uses for that money, and 
I for one would whole heartledly 
endorse the 50cent fee increase. 
After all, the SGA definitley needs 

Next I see where ARGUS wants a 
fee increase of 75 cents. Nothing 
personal, but the last time I looked 
at an ARGUS. I put it down feeling 
depressed as Hell. With titles of 
poems like "Depression" and 
'Alarm", I came away feeling like 
the world was about to end and m y 
life had been a total waste or 
something similar. Maybe three 

quarters isn't too much to ask for, 
but if I'm gonna give them that, 
then I would hope that some of their 
writers would write about some 
pleasant or even happy thoughts, 
instead of nuclear holocausts and 
old people being lonely... 

The third fee increase asks for a 
25 cent fee increase for the NSU 
cheerleaders. It cites these reasons: 

- the cheerleaders serve as one of 
NSU's primary recruiters- 

- the cheerleaders provide the basis 
for the winning spirit at NSU 

- the cheerleaders provide a good 
quality entertainment at sporting 
events and pep rallies 

- the cheerleaders are not receiving 
the neccessary funds to continue to 
provide the same high level of 
excellence for their many activities 
and services which they perform 
O.K. In the first place, no 
cheerleaders ever recruited me to 
come to NSU. For me it was a 
financial matter. "If I wanted a 
college degree, then NSU was the 
place for me". 

Number two. Winning spirit?!? 
The students of NSU haven't had a 
winning spirit in a long, long, long 
time. Maybe it's not all the 
cheerleaders fault. But then again, 
how can you expect all of the 
students to show up for a game 
when of the cheerleaders can't even 
show up for the game? 

As for providing quality en- 
tertainment, I'll leave that one up to 
you. I wouldn't touch that with a 
ten foot pole. 

And finally, in regard to 
providing a level of excellence, I'll 
tell you quite honestly, most of our 
cheerleaders work their butts and 
buttresses off, but there are one or t- 
wo, and they know who they are, 
who instead of cheering at the State 
Fair game, opt to go to a McNeese 
homecoming game in Lake Charles. 
Fortunatley, one bad apple doesn't 
spoil the apple sauce in this in- 
stance. NSU is blessed with several 
talented cheerleaders, so on this 
issue I won't form an opinion... 

As for the University Players and 
their asking of a mere quarter, I 
have to say that I have never seen 
one of their plays, but I hear that 
they are good. So what the hey, go 
ahead and give them their 25 cents.

I don't care what Radical Rag 
says, one part of the SUGB that is 
doing an excellent job is Second 
Vice President Augie McClendon 
and his Concert Committee. 

Augie took over the Second Vice 
President last spring and his first 
major concert was the Chris Cross 
Concert. Since then he has headed 
up another major concert, Hall and 

The big news with concerts now is 
the announcement of the Atlanta 
Rhythm Section for the Christmas 
Festival Concert. This marks the 
first time in a long while that we 
have had two 'big-name' concerts in 
the same semester. 

Our main problem with concerts 
is the fact that we are in a poor 
drawing area for them. Its hard to 
compete with Shreveport for bands 
with their better facilities and larger 

One of the problems the 
Christmas Festival Concert does not 
have is the fact that there aren't any 

people in town that night, it is just 
getting the masses to Prather. The 
Concert Committee is contacting 
area high schools, their newspapers, 
and their bands that will be making 
the trip to town. They are an ex- 
cellent source to try to 'Pack 

Another new aspect of the 
Concert Committee is that they are 
taking much of their own public 
relations over, something that has 
hurt our concerts in the past. 

Another activity taken on by the 
Concert Committee is the 
scheduling of Coffee House acts. 
They are brought in to accomodate 
the special interest groups on 
campus, ones that might not really 
get into some of the big concerts 
brought in. 

One such act is being looked into 
is The Shoppe, a country group. 
They currently have a hit on the 
Country Chart titled, 'Getting High 
on Love.' Might not be Willie, but 
it's a move to please all the different 

kinds of music lovers we have. (No, 
there is no best of the Iranian 
Terrorists planned for this 

The committee is also looking 
into a good Rock and Roll act, 
something we have been lacking for 
quite a while. 

A couple of soul acts are also 
possibilities for the spring. Included 
in the acts that are being looked into 
are the Gap Band, Cameo, and the 
SOS Band. Hey, don't forget Rick 

The process of obtaining bands 
isn't as easy as it appears. Agents 
are contacted and they give the list 
of available bands and prices. It is 
taken to committee and if it passes, 
it goes to the Union Board. If it 
passes there, that's when the real 
work begins. 

Augie stated that for the Chris 
Cross Concert they started setting 
up at 12 noon, and finished at 4 
a.m. A pretty good days work. 

Even though Augie didn't come 

out and say it, musicians don't seem 
to be the easiest people in the world 
to work with, making a tough job 
even tougher. 

The Concert Committee is the 
largest Union Board Committee and 
is open to all interested students. I 
could tell one prerequisite to 
Augie's committee. Dedication. At 
the Hall and Oates concert 18 of his 
committee members were still going 
at it at 2 a.m. So membership isn't 
just for laughs. 

It is easy to complain about things 
that are in the public eye. The 
Current Sauce gets bitched out every 
week, even though it is starting to 
make its way around. The Concert 
Committee is sort of in the same 
game, you can't please the world. 

It is even easier to notice there has 
been alot of work done by the 
Concert Committee as it strives to 
improve, and as Augie McClendon 
said, "We will keep on the up- 

That really tells it all. 

Doug Ireland's Notebook 

...Thoughts on George Plimpton , Sportswriter 

...Thoughts after quarterbacking 
the Detroit Lions... 

...Well, that might be how this 
column would begin if it was 
"George Plimpton's Notebook." 
In all likelihood he would find some 
other lead, one infinitely more 
interesting and entertaining, to get 
the reader's attention. 

Getting the reader's attention has 
never been a problem for Plimpton. 
He gathers interest in his books even 
before they are published. 

He's a modern-day, real-life 
Walter Mitty. What he does for a 
living is act out the fantasies of 
every sports fan and then write 
about his experiences. 

And the things he's done almost 
boggle the mind. He has competed 
with the top professional in several 
sports since the late 1950's. 
Plimpton played tennis with Pancho 
Gonzales, swam against Olympic 

gold medalist Don Schollanders, 
played bridge with Oswald Jacoby, 
boxed three rounds with Archie 
Moore and then he really got 

He pitched to a team of major 
league all-stars in Yankee Stadium 
and told about it in "Out of My 
League," his first book-length 
account of a sports fan's dream. 

His next book, "Paper Lion," is 
probably his best-known work. The 
Detroit Lions allowed him to attend 
their summer training camp as a 
third-string rookie quarterback and 
"Paper Lion" describes the action 
on and off the field. 

The book, a national best seller, 
received so much attention that it 
was made into a major motion 
picture in which Plimpton starred. 

My favorite Plimpton book is 
"Bogey Man," a chronicle of his 

participation in three major golf 
tournaments. Probably the reason I 
liked this book so much is the 
Plimpton is strictly a weekend 
golfer, like myself, and he proved it 
by playing with the pros. 

He had his troubles, and more 
trouble, and more... perhaps the 
best description of his difficulties 
centered around the final hole he 
played in his last tournament, the 
Bob Hope Desert Classic. 

Plimpton's drive was a "titantic 
slice, the last wood shot of the tour, 
the ball soaring toward the desert as 
if the crowd and that final green 
would not accept my approach but 
instead were waving me off like a 
plane from a socked-in airport." 

The second shot was no better. 
"I dug myself in and flailed at the 
ball. I shanked and spun off toward 
the ridge with its forlorn palms. I 
stared after it. The mockery of it, I 

thought~to finish up almost a 
month on the pro tour standing in a 
wilderness beyound sight of 

He didn't bother to look for the 
ball, trudging dejectedly through 
the sand towards the clubhouse, 
certainly shaking his head in 
disbelief of the rotten finish. 

"...If anyone had thrown his club 
in triumph on the 18th at La Quinta, 
the way my luck was running, even 
though I was avoiding my team and 
heading for the clubhouse, skirting 
them by thirty or forty yards, still I 
would have been the one hit on the 
head. Absolutely." 

Now, that's the kind of golfer I 
can relate to, with no problem. 
Maybe we can persuade George to 
play a few holes out at the Rec 

Letters To The Editor 

Dear Editor, 

During the past several months I 
have been an impartial observer of 
the situation involving the student 
government association and the 
Commissioner of Elections, Diana 
Kemp. During that time my opinion 
of both the SGA and the problem 
involving Ms. Kemp began to take 
form. I have based my opinion 
contained in this letter on what I 
Inave read, interaction with fellow 
students, and past experience. My 
intention in writing this letter was 
not to defend Ms. Kemp, but rather 
to send a message to a leaderless and 
confused Student Government 

Editor, Current Sauce: 

"Radical Rag" is not the only one 
mad "as hell." There are others 
and I am one of them! 

I'm mad at the way the SGA is 
conducting itself — can it ever do 
anything right? If a senator is 
absent more than three times 
without a valid excuse, then let the 
Senate remove him from office! 

Whether or not Ms. Dianna 
Kemp is to blame for election mess I 
do not know. There is "something 
rotten in Denmark" as the old 
saying goes, and I think it is time to 
"clean house." 

Dear Editor 

After reading the October 27 
addition of Current Sauce, I've 
come to the conclusion that the 
"Radical Rag's" column should be 
called "Left Wing Radical Trash." 

Because of the comments made 
about A.R.S., I've become deeply 
concerned about the "Radical 
Rags" writer. He may be suffering 
from Top Forty Fever. This is a 

Editor, Current Sauce, Editor, 
Current Sauce, 

Attention! This does not concern 
Diana Kemp. Nor does it attempt to 
analyze the incompetence of the 
Student Government Association. It 
is simply an exercise is self 
evaluation or realization. 

Bearing this thought in mind, let 
us assume that the SGA is in- 
competent. Alas, if this is the case^ 
then who is responsible? Could it be 

It is my opinion that Diana Kemp 
has been subjected to a classic 
"character assassination." It is 
evident that a problem exists in the 
current election rules as set forth by 
Article V of the present SGA 
constitution. I feel that this is a 
result of an inherent weakness in the 
current constitution, as well as Ms. 
Kemps' poor management abilities. 

What I cannot understand is the 
current campaign by 
the SGA Senate to publically 
discredit Ms. Kemp. The most 
recent development in this effort is a 
senate committee to investigate 
rumors concerning the character of 
Ms. Kemp. This is an absurd thing 
for a student government to be 

As far as Ms. Windy Scrimshaw is 
concerned, it was stated, but not 
proved, in the Current Sauce that 
she did, in effect, tell a he, and a lie 
is a he no matter how you look at it. 

It does seem that she is not doing 
her duty as she is supposed to do. 
And, if she is not doing her duty, 
then bring charges against her and 
ry to have her impeached! 

As far as the SUGB is concerned 
all of their executive officers need to 
be elected by the whole NSU student 
body. I agree with the Radical Rag 
II, that we have "taxation without 

common illness today. The symp- 
toms include the opinion that the 
only good bands are those who the 
top forty crowd like; it is unhealthy 
to listen to music, which is not on 
the charts; and it is the duty of the 
individual, with this illness, to 
convert all others to his way of the 
individual, with this illness, to 
convert all others to his way of 
thinking. Deranged. 
Of course I could be wrong. This 

the President because of his lack of 
authority or organization? Or his 
subordinates, the reason being their 
inability to carry out instructions? 
Maybe it might be ignorance in the 
proper Governmental and 
Parlimentary procedures. Quite 
possibly a combination of all of the 
above could be held responsable, 

Tf__you agree with the answer 
right, then you are wrong. Nearly 
always in organized society when 

involved with. I find the SGA's 
efforts to defame Ms. Kemp a direct 
result of poor leadership and a 
definite lack of direction. 

As an executive member of 
another student government, I have 
faced many difficult situations 
similar to that involving Diane 
Kemp. During those tough periods, 
the true leaders begin to emerge and 
take control of chaotic situations. It 
is my contention that the situation 
involving Diane Kemp could have 
been settled long ago if somebody 
had taken a strong leadership 
position. Furthermore, I feel that 
the SGA is losing credibility with the 
student body as a result of this 

The whole SUGB affairs need to 
come out in the open! 

NSU is still a poorly lit campus at 
night with Campus Security officers 
who do not seem to know their job! 

Finally, there is Argus, wanting a 
rate increase. NSU does not need 
Argus— it is sort of like the SUGB, a 
select and closely knit group. 

When will the "silent majority" 
speak out and really take a stand? I 
mean protests, peaceful demon- 
strations and the like! 

I say leave the SGA Constitution 
alone, it reminds me of the U.S. 
Constitution— that 200 plus year old 

writer may not be under the in- 
fluence of Top Forty Fever at all. 
He could conceivably have con- 
tracted Rockphobia (also referred to 
as Bubblegum-Rock-Blindness). 
This is another common happening 
of today. Rockphobia can easily be 
compared to claustraphobia in that 
as the claustraphobic is afraid of 
tight places, the rockphobic is 
afraid of rock music. He shades his 
fear under the tree, called rock 

something goes wrong, people tend 
to place the blame everywhere but 
where the responsability lies. And 
the responsability lies with you 
(and I(, the students of NSU. 

Allow me to elaborate. If our 
Student Government is in- 
compatent then it is our fault. 

Don't give me the excuse that it's 
not your fault because you didn't 
even vote. You carry more of a 
burden of responsability than the 
voters, because maybe your vote 

As it stands now, the senate is still 
dragging their feet, the Supreme 
Court can do nothing, and the 
president is worrying Chaplin's 
Lake. Before long, the student 
body will demand that a leader 
come forward and establish himself. 
Only when this occurs can the SGA 
begin to regain the trust and con- 
fidence that it has lost during the 
past few months. IS SOMEBODY

Demon Men Host 
Mexico Tonight 

Tuesday, November 10, 1981, The Current Sauce, Page 5 

NSU Jumps to Early Advantage, 
Dumps Nicholls Shi 7 

Northwestern 's mens basketball 
team will get its first look at outside 
competition tonight when it hosts 
the Univerity of Juarez, Mexico's 
national champions, in an 
exhibition contest. 

Game time is 7:30 p.m. in NSU's 
Prather Coliseum. The NSU 
Booster Club is sponsoring a pre- 
game get-together starting^at 5:30 
p.m. in the student union building. 

The Demons held their third 
scrimmage of the pre-season last 
Thursday night in Leesville and 
head Coach Wayne Yates was 
pleased with the effort he saw as the 
White squad defeated the Purple 
118-87 after building a 62-29 
halftime advantage. 

"I was much happier tonight than 
after our scrimmage in Many," said 
Yates after the workout. "We 
played so much more like a team. It 
was really about the first time that 
we have looked like a team and not 
like 15 individuals." 

The White team relied on some 
strong shooting and tough defense 
to build the early lead before the 
Purple won the second half by 
playing well in the final 20 minutes. 

Junior guard Kenny Hale scored 
35 points and senior Wayne 
Waggoner added 32 to lead the 
effort for the White team. 
Waggoner, an all-conference guard, 
hit 16 of 18 shots from the field 
while Hale was on target with 16 of 
24 attempts. 

"The White team played very 
well for the first half and then let 
down some after getting the big 
lead," admitted Yates. "But when 
it was close they played tough 
defense and worked the ball well. 
You certanly can't complain when 
your two guards are 32 of 42 from 
the field." 

The Purple squad was led by 
guard Fred Walker with 32 points 

while Earnest Reliford added 17 and 
Harry Francis 12. Walker also shot 
well, hitting 15 of 26. Reliford and 
sophomore Jerry Harris both had 
seven rebounds for the Purple team. 

The White team was led inside by 
6-10 junior Johnny Martin and 
forward Jerry Lynch, who was 
playing in front of his hometown 
fans. Martin, who ranked sixth in 
the nation in rebounding two years 
ago at Arkansas College, had 13 
Thursday night while also scoring 17 
points. Lynch scored 19 points and 
added nine rebounds. 

"Our attitude Thursday night was 
much more team oriented," said 
Yates. "It was the best we have 
passed the ball this year. Now I do 
think we are ready for outside 
competition. We have been playing 
against ourselves long enough and I 
think the players are all looking 
forward to this evening. 

The Mexico team that the 
Demons will face Tuesday won the 
Mexico national title last season 
with a 28-9 last season under first 
year Coach Chuck Skarshaug. 
Juarez is expected to be led by guard 
Luis Valdez, a 6-4 sophomore, and 
Jaime Garcia, a 6-8 freshman 

"I really don't know what to 
expect from this team, although I do 
think it will be a good game," said 
Yates. "Playing under in- 
ternational rules will be in their 
favor because it will be new to us." 

The team from Mexico played at 
Louisiana Tech last night and will 
visit Northeast Louisiana after 
playing in Natchitoches. 

The Demons will open the regular 
season November 28 against 
Arkansas Tech in Prather Coliseum 
with the first conference game at 
Arkansas-Little rock on December 

Northwestern used a hard-rushing 
defense and a ball control offense to 
defeat Nicholls State, 31-17, here 
Saturday night. 

The Demons snapped a five-game 
losing streak and improved their 
record to 3-6 while Nicholls State, 
losing for the third straight week, 
falls to 4-5. 

The Demons used two 90-yard 
drives to move from a 7-3 to a 21-3 
advantage to virtually wrap up the 
contest. The first came just before 
halftime and the second came early 
in the third quarter. 

Northwestern built its advantage 
to 31-3 before the Colonels got two 
fourth period scores, the last 
coming on the final play of the 

"It's just good to win one," said 
Demon coach A.L.Williams. "We 
felt that with ball control we could 
run and throw on them. Defen- 
sively, our game plan was to blitz. 
We didn' feel they could handle the 
pressure. Our defensive people did a 
much better job this week, ex- 
pecially in the secondary." 

The Demons gained 412 yards in 
the contest, 321 coming in the air. 
Nicholls, on the other hand, was 
held to just 30 yards rushing, but 
gained 256 passing. 

The first half of play contained 
plenty of two things for both 
teams — long, time-consuming 
drives and penalties. Northwestern 
got its two scores on drives of 79 
yards and 90 yards while the 
colonels went 53 years in 12 plays 
for their only score. 

Nicholls State took a 3-0 lead in 
the first period when Todd Morgan 
connected on a 30-yard field goal. 
The drive covered 53 yards, took 12 
plays and 5:03 off the clock. 

The Demons came right back on 
their next possesson to take the lead. 

The score came when tailback 
Kenny Jones swept four yards OIL 

the first play of the second period. 
Quickel added the PAT for the 7-3 

From that time until the final 
three minutes of the half the biggest 
plays were called back on penalties. 
Northwestern State intercepted a 
pass and returned it for a score but 
that was called back on an offsides 

Three plays later cornerback 
Michael Richardson intercepted a 
Gordon Falgoust pass, but that, 
too, was called back because of an 
offsides penalty. 

Nicholls State threatened to take 
the lead late in the second period 
before that drive was stopped by a 
fumble, cornerback Sonny Louis 
recovering at the Demon 10-yard 

From there the Demons drove 90 
yards in 1 1 plays to score with just 
17 seconds left in the half. Powell 
got the score on a two-yard 
scamper, fumbling just after he 
crossed the goalline. Quickel's 
second straight PAT made it 14-3 at 

Nicholls State threatened on its 
first possession of the second half, 
driving to a first and goal at the 
Northwestern 1-yard line. But, on 
second down, Falgoust fumbled a 
pitchout attempt and David Grappe 
recovered for the Demons. Nor- 
thwestern took over at the 10 and 
promptly drove 90 yards for its third 

The score came on a 17-yard pass 
from Powell to Jerry Weaver. The 
90 yards were covered in 1 1 plays. 

After Nicholls failed on three 
straight passes, the Demons took 
over on the Nicholls 35 after a short 
punt. Five plays later Eric Barkley 
on his first attempt of the game, hit 
James Bennett for a 24-yard score, 
upping Northwestern' s lead to 28-3 
at the end of three quarters. 

Early in the fourth quarter 
Nicholls failed again to move the 
ball, but put Northwestern in a hole 
at its own 15 on a punt. Barkley 
completed two straight passes to 
Mark Duper, the second a 47- 
yarder, to set up a first and goal at 
the 10. Three plays failed to gain 
ground and Quickel hit a 27-yard 
field goal, upping the Demons' lead 
to 31-3. The firld goal gave Quickel 
55 points on the season, setting a 
single season scoring record for 
Demon kickers. Barkley's passing 
in that drive allowed him to become

NSU has another open date this 
week, which will give them plenty of 
time to prepare for the invasion of 
Northeast Louisiana, November 21; 
le season finale. 

Women Prepare For Opener 

With the season opening game at 
Louisiana College a week away, 
Northwestern Lady Demon 
basketball Coach Pat Pierson feels 
her team is coming along on 

The Lady Demons were vic- 
torious last Tuesday night against 
the NSU Booster Club Bombers and 
Pierson says that game showed 
some bright spots for her team. "I 
think it showed that we are in good 
physical condition," stated Pierson 
after her Lady Demons posted a 77- 
57 win. 

"A main part of our game this 
season will be getting the ball up the 
floor on the break," pointed out 
Pierson. "And I think we did a 
good job of that Tuesday night. I 
think we can be a strong team 
running the break." 

The November 3 contest also gave 
the Lady Demons a chance to play 
against a big zone defense. "The 
chance to work against that zone 
helped because I think we will see 
alot of zones this season," added 
Pierson. "And I thought we played 
well against it. Tracy Taylor was 
playing inside against some big 
people and I thought she did a good 

Taylor, the 6-3 sophmore center 
from Downsville, led the team with 
26 points and had eight rebounds. 
Kim Paulk added 12 points, 
Stephany Washington had 12 points 
and seven rebounds and Lisa Carter 
had eight rebounds. 

"Lisa Carter is going to be a very 
good player for us," said Pierson. 
"I like her at the point because she 
is so good at getting the ball up the 
floor. She moves the ball well in 
traffic and is another good 
rebounder. When she gets a few 
games in she should be even better." 
Carter is a transfer to Northwestern 
who did not play last season. 

Pierson lost one starter last week 
when Sharon Brown resigned from 
school and returned home Sibley. 
Pierson says Tracy Willis and 
Stephany Washington will divide 
time at that forward position. 

"Tracy will play against a zone 
defense because she is a good 
shooter," noted Pierson. "But 
Stephany is more aggressive and will 
play more against a man-to-man. 
We have confidence "in either of 
those two, right now they just need 
to get that confidence in themselves 
and I think they will after they get a 
couple of games into the season." 

As of now Carter will be the 
starter at point guard, but Pierson 

Fashion Begins 
At Genesis 

says she may also see action at the 
strong guard spot. "We like having 
Lisa at the point because she can 
move the ball and run the offense," 
added Pierson. "We are still 
looking for a wing guard, or if Lisa 
plays on the wing we need some 
improved play from someone else at 
the point position." 

Pierson admits the loss of Brown 
has made things a little more dif- 
ficult, "Right now the girls are not 
as confident," noted Pierson. 
"They just haven't found out yet 
that they can play, and win, without 
Sharon. But I think that will change 
with a little time as they find out 
that we still have some very talented 
players to step in and play at that 

The Lady Demons will open the 
season November 16 at Louisiana 
College and will play at Arkansas 
and at Southwestern Louisiana 
before opening the home season 
November 28 against Southwestern

Big Ten Dropped From 

Predictions; Fugitive 
Sjoberg, Still At Large 

Fugitive panel member Bob 
Sjoberg has apparently won this 
week's edition of the Porker Picker 
Panel's predictions. Sjoberg, who 
hasn't been seen since charges of 
tampering with the scores of games 
being picked, were levied upon him 
by David Stamey (5-5) and Joe 
Cunningham (also 5-5) had a 7-3 
won-loss record for the week to 
move into sole possession of first 
place in the overall standings. 

Sjoberg's scores were flown into 
the Current Sauce offices by Federal 
Express, and Stamey is holding on 
to them as evidence in the" scandal. 

Stamey declined comment on his 
pathetic week predicting games and 
Cunningham, upset over the fact 
that he dropped out of first place in 
the overall rankings for the first 
time all year, vowed not to let the 
fugitive Yankee from somewhere 
just south of the Canadien border, 
ever pick another Big Ten game" as 
long as I'm running this column." 

Elsewhere, Dr. Ray Baumgardner 
snuck into third place in the overall 
rankings with a 6-4 record for the 
week. However, Dr. Baumgardner 
filed protest over Cunningham's use 
of the word 'Yankee'. He denied 
that his being from Colorado had 
anything to do with the protest 

Guest selectors Amy Nell 
Padgett. Neil Evans, and Linda C- 
ooksey all sported 6-4 records to 
move the guest selectors wihin five 
and six games of first place. Amy 
Nell won an all expense paid date 
with the ex-NSU baseball player of 
her choice.when she became the 
only panelist to successfully predict 
the outcome of the Miami-Fla. St. 

However, everyone was tinea 
$2.17 for missing the New Orleans 
versus Los Angeles game. 

This week, the Porker Picker 
Panel is joined by three new female 
guest's, Tootie Cary, the NSU 
Director of Intramurals. Vickie 
Williams, Tootie's right hand 
woman in that department., and 

Laurie Martin, a freshman Nursing 
Major from Opelousas, who also 
doubles as an NSU cheerleader. 

In a bizzare coincedence, it was 
learned late last night that among 
the games being picked this week 
were the two Intramural Super 
Bowl's. The fact that the two Super 
Bowl's were being picked this week 
had almost nothing to do with 
Tootie and Vickie being selected. 
No reason has been given for the 
selection of Laurie to the panel, but 
sources close to this colthis column 
state that without equivocation, it 
was strictlyumn state that without 
equivocation, it was strictly this 
colthis column state that without 
equivocation, it was strictlyumn 
state that without equivocation, it 
was strictly this column state that 
without equivocation, it was 
strictly a matter of chauvanism- 
sexism on the part of the all-male 
Porker Picker staff. Sjjoberg of 
course, couldn't be reached for 
comment on this situation and Dr. 
Baumgardner declined to comment 
on the situation citing hat since his 
wife had seen the last issue of the 
SAUCE where it said that Dr. B. 
"made very in-depth observations 
of the other team's cheerleader's", 
she threatened to tell the wogld that 
the real way that Br. Baumgardner 
picks his games is that he gets killer 
mice and puts little mini-helmets 
that you get out of bubble gum 
machines on the mice, and he paints 
the teams colors on the helmets and 
whichever mouse eats the other one, 
Dr. Baumgardner picks the team 
that is painted on the mouse's 
helmet to win. 

Cunningham asked that all 
questions be directed to Stamey. 
Stamey was caught putting 8 by 10 
glossies of all past female Porker 
Pickers on the wall of his bedroom. 
Obviously upset, Stamey said that 
he was just saving these pictures for 
the former P pickers to put in their 
scrap books in about thirty years.

Runners Place Second in T AAC 

The Northwestern cross country 
team finished the 1981 season on a 
high note as they placed second in 
the Trans America Conference meet 
held last Saturday in Calhoun. 

It was the second consecutive year 
NSU finished in the runner-up 
position. Northeast Louisiana 
grabbed the championship with 16, 
and NSU followed with 63. Other 
team scores included: Centenary 
70, Samford 91, Houston Baptist 
126, and Hardin-Simmons 164. 

Even though the Demons placed 
second best, coach Jerry Dyes was 
not impressed. "We didn't perform 
very well," Dyes stated. "We 
weren't stocked with cross country 
runners, and neither were any of the 
other teams, with the exception of 
Northeast. That is why they won. I 
expected a better performance from 
all of my runners last Saturday, but 
maybe I was asking too much." 

Senior Vic Bradford paced the 
Demons with seventh place time of 
34:10, and freshman Robert Dukes 
was right behind in eighth, coming 
in at 34:14. 

Both Bradford and Dukes 
qualified for the All-Conference 
team, based on their performances 
in the TAAC tourney. The top ten 
runners in the meet are 
automatically on the honor squad. 
Another NSU harrier just missed 
making it. .Freshman Andy Nelson 
finished in eleventh position, as he 
covered the course in 34:53. 

NLU's Tommy Dunn took in- 
dividual honors with a time of 
32:07. The Indians garnered the top 

four places in the meet. 

In retrospect on the short season, 
Dyes partially accepted the blame 
for the showing. "This was the 
weakest team I ever had," Dyes 
commented. "I want to win, but to 
do so, I'm going to do something 
drastic. I have to head north and 
recruit cross country people because 
there aren't any in Louisiana."

The Super Bowl of NSU Intramural flag football will be held this 
Wednesday at Turpin Stadium with the women's championship to start at 
7:30 and the men to follow at 8:30. 

The VIP's will take on Un Kappa Fifth in the first game. The independent 
champions, the Steelers, will square off against the Brothers of Kappa 
Sigma in the second game. 

The VIP's made it to the turf after winning 14-6 over Tri Sigma. Susan 
Prince and Renetta Judice scored the two touchdowns for the VIP's. Stacey 
Maddox had the only TD for Tri Sigma. 

Un Kappa Fifth had a little tougher time on their road to Turpin 
Stadium, as they just got by Phi Mu 14-13. Janet Guerrinni scored eight of 
the points for the winners, and Cindy Berry added a first half score. Phi 
Mu had a chance to win the game with little time remaining when Sheri 
Shaw scored to bring the score to 14-13. They missed on their try for two 
points and Un Kappa Fifth Advanced with the win. 

Kappa Sigma had little trouble with their opponents during the playoffs 
as they breazed with two victories. They took a 20-6 win over Phi Beta 
Sigma, as Mike Brown once again provided most of the Sigs scoring with 
two TDs. Mark Cottrell added another score for the Sigs. 

Kappa Sigma' s opponent in the second game was Kappa Alpha. KA had 
reached the finals of the Fraternity division by defeating Omega Psi Phi 27- 
22 on a last minute touchdown pass from Philip Ackel to Bob Morgan. 

In the finals the Sigs broke out to a 7-0 first half lead and their defense 
shut out the KA's the rest of the way. Brown scored the first six for the Sigs 
and Jay Vail added six more in the second half to bring the winning margin 
to 14-0. 

The Steelers, the Independent champs, were never really threatened in the 
playoffs as they took the eight team affair with three easy wins. 

The Steelers received scores from Lamar Johnson, Mario Johnson, David 
Monette, and Tony Mays to crush the Kingpins 25-8 in their first game. 

In the Jocks only playoff game, James Davis scored 12 points and 
Larsen, Norvell, Oliver and Clarius added anoth TD each as they took a 42- 
16 win over BSU-Wesley. The Jocks had to forfeit to G.D.I. Omen in the 
second . jund. 

In other first round games Conine defeated the Brotherhood 12-0 on 
touchdowns by Robinson and Wiggins, and G.D.I. Omen took a close 13- 
12 win over the Univ. of Yang as James Ambler scored both the Omen's 

In the second round the Steelers beat Conine 26-14. The Steelers got 
scoring from Monette, Fuller, Washington, and Copeland. G.D.I. Omen 
advanced with that forfeit from the Jocks. 

The final game didn't last a half as two of G.D.I.'s players were ejected 
from the game ending it with a 6-0 score in the Steelers favor. 

In recapping the top teams seasons the VIPs have gone undefeated this 
year, their only close game coming against the team they will face on the 
turf, Un Kappa Fifth. It was a 6-0 win for the VIPs. That was the only 
game that Un Kappa Fifth lost so look for a tough game in the women's 

Th men's game should be equally great. Kappa Sigma went through the 
season undefeated in the fraternity division. 

The Steelers only received one setback this year that coming at the hands 
of the Univ. of Yang. No one else has stayed within ten points of the 
Steelers this year They have a great running quarterback in Keith Epps and 
with speedster David Fuller at end, if Epps can get the ball to him in the 
open nobody short of Joe Delaney will catch him. Should be two great 
games, if you can't be at the game catch it on KNWD-FM starting at 7:25 

The Miller Brewing Co. and its local Distributor Natchitoches Beverage 
are sponsoring the awards for the championships. There will be first and 
second place team trophies, first place individual trophies, and Miler- 
Intramural T-shirts for the members of all the teams involved in the games 
Wednesday. A Miller MVP trophy will also be presented for both games. 

The resits of the Intramural Tennis tournaments are in and Parker 
Thompson and Nita Hughens won their respective divisions. Joe Bienvenu 
of the Univ. of Yang took second in the men's division and Debbie spica 
took second in the women's catagory.

Plimpton Entertains Students With His Occupation 

By Sonja Henry 
Assistant Editor 

"What I do for a living is enter 
other people's occupations in order 
to write articles and books about 
them", said noted author George 
Plimpton at his appearance at the 
Distinguished Lecture series on 
Thursday, Nov. 14. 

The author said that he has 
participated in occupations in- 
cluding boxing the Lightweight 
Champion of the world, running in 
the Boston Marathon, touring with 
the New York Philharmonic Or- 
chestra, and even acting in a movie 
with John Wayne. 

Plimpton related to an en- 
thusiastic audience how he started 
his "participatory journalism" in 
college. He said that he applied for a 
position on his college newspaper, 
the Harvard Lampoon. 

"The editors insisted I run the 
Boston Marathon and write about 
it", said Plimpton. He added, 
"They didn't say how far I had to 
run... so I entered a block and a 
half from the finish line". 

Plimpton explained the comical 
sight of the ieader of the race look 
over his shoulder to see a fresh 
runner appear from out of nowhere. 
The sight caused such fear, that 
aher running almost 26 miles, the 
leader broke into a sprint to finish 
the race. 

Plimpton came in second. 

The winner, after discovering that 
Plimpton had only run a block and 
a half, tried to punch Plimpton, 
"but didn't have the strength to lift 
his arm", said Plimpton. 

The presentation was compiled of 
humorous stories of Plimpton's 
adventures in his participatory 

The speech was interrupted 
several times by interfearance by TV 
camera people. The tall, dignified 
figure chided the photographers 
for their disturbances. 

"These photographers coming 
into you life, turning on lights and 
dropping things and acting like they 
aren't there... Why don't we go stare 

into the windows of the TV station 
and see how they like it", said 

Plimpton said about pitching to 
Willie Mays in an exhibition game in 
Yankee Stadium, "...It gave me a 
chance to stand on the mound and 
stare at these faces that you nor- 
mally see on baseball cards". 

...Of a scheduled boxing match 
with then Heavyweight Champion 
of the world, Mohammad Ali, 
"Several weeks before the scheduled 
fight he began calling me at 2 a.m. 
He told me, 'You is going to fall 
during the ring instructions". 

...Of quarterbacking for the 
Detroit Lions in a pre-season game, 
"I lost 30 yards in my four big 

...Of calling up to Arnold Palmer 
from the bottom of a gulley during a 
Celebrity Golf Tournament, 
"Arnold's expression was one of a 
businessman who is suddenly aware 
that something has moved in the 

bottom of his wastepaper basket". 

Plimpton said that the most 
memorable character he had ever 
met was Mohammad Ali. "He has 
done things beyond what athletes 
normally do", said Plimpton. He 
added, "He refused to go to 
war... gave up his source of income 
and aroused the displeasure of his 
countrymen ", said Plimpton. 

Alex Karras is another of 
Plimpton's favorates. "He wanted 
to be a western movie star", said 
Plimpton. He said that Karras 
wanted to have a film name of Ace 
Zurbolnski "to fill an ethnic void", 
arid instead of wearing a hat, 
Karras would carry a Japanese 
parasol to protect his head from the 

Plimpton said his participation in 
different occupations were mostly 
really humiliating, not interesting. 
He added that readers want "the 
sociology of these great players... 
they are not interested in me, but in 
what I can find out about this secret

Miss Jennifer Todd, a sophomore 
Dance major from Natchitoches, is 
this year's Miss Lady of the 
Bracelet. Miss Todd, the daughter 
of Mr. and Mrs. Pat Todd, was 
selected as Miss LOB at the 13th 
Annual Miss Northwestern — Lady 
of the Bracelet Beauty Pagaent 
sponsored by the Northwestern 
Student Governing Board held 
Saturday, Nov. 14, at Prather 

Napoli Proposes Fee Decrease 

Miss Todd is a 1980 graduate of 
St. Mary's High School, and is 
presently a sophmore Dance major 
at Northwestern. 

Miss Todd, 1st year's first runner 
up in the pageant, won the Swimsuit 
award this year. 

For her talent entry, Miss Todd 
tap danced to "Don't Tell Mama". 

Miss Todd will now go on to

first runner up. Miss Murphy is the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mike 
Murphy of Natchitoches. She is a

High School, and is a freshman 
Music major. 

First runner up position is an 
important one. If for any reason, 
the New Lady of the Bracelet is

State University, the first runner up 
will automatically be called upon to 
fill the position. 

Mr. and Miss NSU Runoff Wednesday 

A bill recommending parking tickets be 
lowered from $5 to one dollar, and a bill to 
recommend all campus parking facilities be 
open to students at one p.m. daily, was 
introduced by Senator Dean Napoli. 

"The Appeals Committee is opposing this 
greatly,... they are almost one-sided on this 
thing", said Napoli. 

Senator Theresa Sullivan explained that 
the Appeals Committee decided the parking 
fines should be raised to $5 at the end of last 
spring. Ms. Sullivan said that the SGA 
needed "to get the wheels in motion" on the 
recommendation, as it had to go through two 
commitees before the recommendation could 
be acted on. 

On opening reserved faculty and ad- 
ministration parking to the students after 1 
p.m. daily, Napoli told the story of a student 
getting a ticket for being parked in a reserved 
slot during a night-time movie. 

"There's nobody here in the afternoons", 
said Napoli. 

The recommendations, both of which 
passed, will go to the Appeals Committee 
and the Traffic Committee for approval.

The members of Baseline Bums would be 
required to buy special Tee Shirts for the 
Basketball games, and sit in areas on either 
end of the bleachers, explained Ms. Tessier. 

"As an incentive we'll have a drawing for a 
free steak dinner for two for Tee Shirt 
buyers", said Ms. Tessier. She said that one 
dollar from each shirt sale would be donated 
to the Booster Club. 

- Ms. Tessier announced that this year's 
Lady Demon games will be broadcast over 
KDBH, along with the men's games. 

Tee shirts for the Baseline Bums are 
avialabe for $5 at Posey's. 

The SGA did not formally endorse or 
approve the plan. 

Finalists for Mr. NSU are Gary 
Fields, senior mass communications 
major from Alexandria, and Cliff 
Lopez, senior psychology major 
from Shreveport. Miss NSU 
finalists are Sherri Talley, senior 
business administration major from 
Shreveport, and Diane Adams, 
senior' business administration and 
secretarial administration major 
from Alexandria. 

A campus-wide election will be 
held this week to choose this year's 
Mr. and Mrs. NSU. Winners will 
not be announced until Saturday, 
Nov. 21, during pregame 
ceremonies at the NSU — Northeast 
Louisiana University football game 
in Turpin Stadium. 

Fields, an honor scholarship 
recipient at NSU, is a member of 
Blue Key Honor Fraternity. He has 
also recieved the outstanding pledge 
and brother of the year awards from

Heavy Light 
Presents BlackDog 

Nov. 18 & 19 

Heavy Light Productions presents 
Black Dog on Wednesday November 
18 and Thursday November 19 at 
p.m. in the Keyser Auditorium. 
Black Dog is a thought-provoking 
discussion stimulating fourteen 
projector and three screen multi- 
media production. The production 
consists of two thirty minute multi- 
media films which are a unique 
blending of the pop and the 
cartoomsh with the stunningly real. 
The production is particularly 
designed to be used with the 
generation that has grown up with 
slogans of peace and love, rock 
groups such as Black Sabbath, Alice 
Cooper, and Kiss, and movies such 
as The Exorcist, The Omen, and 
American Graffitti. 

The creative Sam Smith presents 
this multi-media production by 
Heavy Light. He state, "I want 
people to think and deal «Slth the 
material, and so I try to personalize 
it, and this leads itself to making a 
much longer and lasting impact on 
the people." 

When Sam wants to communicate 
a certain message, he begins with the 
concept and then writes the copy, 
picks the music, visualizes what 
pictures he needs, and finally, goes 
out and makes the slides which will 
fit the idea and message. 

they combine their talents of 
photography and music to produce 
a truly innovative concert. 

This multi-image production puts 
Thompson's live musical per- 
formance together with Jamieson's 
spectacular alpine photography 
highlighting ten years of moun- 
taineering in the Yukon, Alaska, 
South America, and the North 
American Rockies. The 
arrangement of Thompsons songs 
matches perfectly with Jamiesons 
precisely arranged slides, turning 
their performance into a visual 

This duo met in 1977 inColorado 
and formed Never Summer 
Productions. They toured their first 
shows through Nebraska and, later 
that year, the West Coast. Since that 
time, Niver Summer Productions 
has continuously refined and ex- 
panded upon the original format, 
touring 61 cities in 14 states last 

Their show called, "I Saw The 
Wind" is an exciting program which 

takes you up mountains and into the 
heart of nature, capturing such 
wonders as a rainbow spreading out 
as it hits the earth. Jamieson's 
photographs, which he has collected 
from all over the world during his 
climbing career of 10 years com- 
bined with Thompson's music, of 

which he has a recently released 
album called A Fine Line, challenge 
the audience to see these areas in a 
new perspective. 

So if you're tired of watching the 
same shows on TV or listening to 
the same songs on the radio come to 
the Student Union Tuesday 
December 1 at 7:30 p.m. and bei 
prepared to "see the wind" as ill 
travels across rainbows and up the| 
sides of mountains.

Speech and Theatre 

When the Northwestern State 
Uiversity Theatre and Speech 
Department opens the doors this 
Thursday and Friday night for their 
next major production, theatre 
goers are in for a surprise. They will 
be treated to not one but two plays. 
And there's more; both of the plays 
are original scripts by NSU students 
and are being produced for the first 
time anywhere. 

Susan Haga wrote "Rockefeller 
Square" and Theatre Department 
head Dr. E. Robert Black will direct 
the show. "Rockefeller Square" 
should be of special interest to 
Louisianians if for not other reason 
han the setting-the promenade 
between Jackson Square and St. 
Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. 
The cast is another point of special 
interest. Veteran actors Grayson 
Harper, Vince Abila, Kimberlee 
Brent, Jeff Henderson, and Eric 
LaCour join forces to balance out 
this untried script. 

"Safe" is a play about a West 
Point Commanding General and his 
wife on the afternoon of his 

retirement ceremonies. "Safe" was 
written by Kathleen Smith and 
directed by Roger Manning 
LeBrescu. "Safe" also features 
veteran actors Michael W. Atkins 
and Sally Carmichael, instructors at 

"The evening is being bill, ap- 
propriately, Showcase for New 
Playwrights," according to Black. 
"It's a long overdue project and we 
hope it is just the beginning of 

Black said this is the first time the 
English and Theatre Departments 
have gotten together to work with 
aspiring writers from the beginning 
of an idea through the scripting and 

"It's something that we feel will 
benefit not only the students, but 
the school as well," said Black. 

Both plays will show each night 
beginning at 8 p.m. in Theatre 
Room 320 of the Student Union and 
there will be an intermission bet- 
ween the two. Admission is $1 for 
everyone except NSU students who 
are admitted free with their ID.

group communicates with original 
songs that feature vocal harmonics 
and progressive rhythms. 

On the other hand, another group 
will perform consisting of five 
young men from Dallas, Texas who 
combined their musical talents into 
The Shoppe, one of this country's 
liveliest and most promising country 
music groups.

have travelled from coast to coast 
and have shared the stage with such 
greats as Bob Hope, Barbara 
Mandrell, Ronnie Milsap and Dolly 
Parton, and also appeared in the

effort in 1980 to record an album 
entitled "Tryin' to get it Straight," 
from which two singles have ap- 
peared in Billboard Magazines Top 
100 Chart. While September has

Current Sauce 

The Word Is Free Speech A lley 

Five Free Speech Alley's have come and gone, and unfortunately, after a 
great beginning, the crowd gathering around moderator Clifton Bolgiano 
and his 12:30-1:30 forum have begun to diminish. The question is; Why? 

Free Speech Alley is one of the best things to happen to the regular 
majority of students at this campus in a long time. Nowhere else is there a 
better place to vent some frustrations than at the Alley. 

At the first couple of Alley's there were overflow crowds. Extra tables 
had to be set up so that everybody could have a place to sit down. Now what 
has all of a sudden happened? Is it not exciting enough for you? Surely 
things at Northwestern can't be ALL perfect. And pity the poor Bogiano. 
Now, in an effort to keep the restless crowds around a while longer, he has 
begun to tell jokes and he has even gone so far as to bring us 'Clifton's 
Consumer Corner', or something like that. With apologies to Ralph Nadar, 
Bolgiano entertained the crowd with his rendition of. 'Why Pork and Beans 
Shouldn't Be Called Pork And Beans'. 

Now Clifton is a good storyteller, and many of the people in the sparse 
crowd were spellbound during his moment of truth, but the real purpose of 
the Alley is for the students to come up and take their shots at Nor- 
thwestern. This is not a knock on Clifton by any means, there is probably 
no one else at Northwestern who could get up and do what Clifton has 
done and be half as good. 

What Free Speech Alley needs is a few readicals to get up and say what's 
on their minds. Goodness, the SAUCE got blasted all over the place in the 
first three or four Alley's. But the SAUCE came back and got their two- 
cents worth later. The SGA has been blasted, the SUGB has been verbally 
destroyed, and the University Police were taking a verbal tongue lashing at 
one point. But where are the listeners? What happened to that 200-plus 
audience that was at the original Free Speech Alley? 

Come on people. Get up there and speak your piece. The Free Speech 
Alley was initiated for you and it is your time to get radical. And do get 
radical. Almost anything goes at the Alley so get up and give poor Clifton 
a break. If nothing else, at least ask questions about the things at dear ole 
NSU that you don't understand. And if there are too many of those things 
around, then find the one or two that bug you most. 

But don't sit in your dorm or class room and complain that nothing ever 
gets done at Northwestern. If you don't ask questions and try to find out 
the answers, then of course nothing will get done. 

A Guest Ed/tonal 

I am sure that most students have 
heard by now that ARGUS 
magazine is asking for a fee increase 
of seventy- five cents. Many may be 
asking why an increase for ARGUS. 
I would like to address that question 

First of all, for those of you who 
are new to the school, ARGUS 
Magazine is a publication put out by 
NSU students, composed of 
writings, photography, and artwork 
of Northwetsern students, and 
edited by Northwestern students. It 
has been published since 1976. The 
ARGUS Magazine has produced 
prize winning work in every issue 
published: in fact, a short story 
published in last spring's ARGUS 
won the Grand Prize in the 
Louisiana College Writer's 
Competition. ARGUS is recognized 
around the state for its quality, and 
its material comes directly from the 
pens and cameras of the NSU 

The problem at this time, 
however, which is prompting us to 
come to you the students ask for 
money is this: We presently collect 
one dollar a semester from your 
student fees. The cost of producing 
an issue the quality that the last few 
ARGUSes have been, per issue, is a 
little over two dollars. 

Up until now, the additional cost 
has been covered bv using reserve 

funds left over from previous 
semesters. The fact of the matter is 
that we no longer have any reserve 
funds. We cannot continue to 
produce the quality magazine that 
Northwestern students have come to 
expect with the budget we have. 

ARGUS reluctantly made the 
decision to go to one issue this year 
so as to not cut quality. This means 
that we will be able to produce less 
of your forks. 

We would like to continue to 
produce the quality that you, the 
NSU student have come to expect. 
We want to continue to publish your 
works, and to put out a magazine 
that others around the state can 
respect. ARGUS can and does 
attract students, and serves as a 
good way for NSU to become 
known among area high school 

But we cannot continue producing 
the quality we have been unless we 
can meet the printer's bills. There 
is really truth to the old cliche' 
"You get what you pay for." We 
want to ontue to produce a high 
quality magazine. We need your vo- 
te to do that. 

So tomorrow, VOTE AYE FOR

David Stamey's AmaziiT Pointz 

... Wondering How and Why? 

The David Stamey list of won- 
dering whys and hows... 

Wonder why good student money 
was spent on changing the doors at 
the Post Office, whenas one co-ed 
stated, it could have been used for 
bug spray for my room... 

Wonder why they even have such 
a thing as midterm grades. They are 
a pain for teachers, half the students 
don't pick them up, they gotta be a 
big cost for the administration, and 
most of all mama and daddy don't 
see them. Couldn't there be a better 

Wonder why after being a good 
citizen all semester and parking inall 
pre-determined spots, I get that 
infamous five dollar ticket for 
parking in a teachers spot from 
9:00-9:50. Those guys are quick... 

Speaking of tickets, wonder why 
the increase in the amount of the 
fine went from one dollar to five 
dollars in one hop. Next jump they 
will want your first born son. Do 
somethine "The Dream"... 

Speaking of increases, why did 
they increase the price of stamps 
from .18 cents to .20 cents just when 
I was getting used to . 1 5 cents. . . 

Wonder why the one time you 
skip class, that's a sure time for a 
pop quiz. Well thinking back, 
maybe it wasn't the first time, but it 
was in the top ten... 

Wonder why you can buy the 
handy-dandy brand new psychology 
book at the first of the semester for 
the low price of just $25.95, but 
can't sell it back (hardly used) 
because they are changing editions. 
Frankly Sigmund Freud, I don't 
give a damn... 

Wonder how Head Track Coach 
Jerry Dyes produced five Ail- 
Americans last year, the finest track 
team in the state, and one of the 
finest in the south, when the closest 
thing he has to an assistant coach is 
Sammy Scruggs. (Just kidding Sam, 
Be Yang)... 

Wonder how long it will take 
Northwestern to recognize and 

reward Coach Dyes for all of the 
above. Then again forget about the 
recognition, he has done fine 
without it, just get him a little 
money to work with... 

Wonder why when your six hours 
short of graduating in the spring, 
they don't offer three of those hours 
until the fall. Well you don't have 
anything to do next September did 
you Augie?... 

Wonder why Northwestern 
bother to go recruit quality baseball 
players, make Stroud Field into a 
fine complex for playing baseball, 
then the closest thing they get to a 
head baseball coach is an assistant 
football coach and a couple of 
Graduate Assistants. Taking 
nothing away from that group but if 
we're going to compete Division I 
baseball, that is another area of our 
sports program that could use a 
little more help... 

Wonder why the only Newsweek 
missing from the periodicals is the 
August 28, 1981 issue you need for 

your term paper... 

Wonder why I though I couldn't 
totally BS a total column, ha, I was 

Wonder if anybody is going to 
catch that Joe Delaney of the 
Kansas City Chiefs from, as the 
broadcasters say, Northwest 
Louisiana. Joe D. set an all-time 
single game rushing record for the 
Chiefs Sunday when he gained 193 
yards on 28 carries. That marked 
the fifth time he has gone over 100 
yards in a game this year. The Chief 
fans showed their appreciation with 
a standing ovation. To bad NSU 
fans didn't really get into the games 
when Joe was here. With all the 
great athletes we have produced, 
seems like the fans wouldn't be as 
laid back as they are. Maybe we 
need to import some rowdy fans to 
come see the Demons in their last 
home game Saturday night against 
big rival Northeast...

is tantamount to describing the

goes beyond that. 

Festival week, and especially

best of everything this area has to

Editor, Current Sauce: 

It is unfortunate that Mr. Adams 
harbors a grudge against ARGUS 
for rejecting some of his sub- 
missions (RE CURRENT SAUCE, 
November 10). As most writers 
know, rejection of one's material, at 
any level, is not a personal attack. 
Rather, it simply reflects the sub- 
jectivity and considerations of the 
current editor and staff. In the case 
of ARGUS, students should know 
that the contributions are identified 
by social security number — not the 
author's name. Thus each work is 
judged on its own merit. 

Also, Mr. Adams needs to clarify 
his comparison of ARGUS and 
SUGB. Whereas, the SUGB serves 
the student body, ARGUS serves 
individual students. The variety of 
literature and types of art 
represented exemplify the diversity 
of student emotion and expression. 
ARGUS is a vital asset to this 
university because it provides the 
means to showcase the individuality 

Dear Editor 

For the past several weeks I have 
carefully read and watched the 
paper to see how students would 
react to several events that have 
occurred recently in the SGA. After 
reading three letters written to you 
in the last issue, I could no longer 
remain silent, because I felt that a 
few matters needed to be clarified 
once and for all to the students. 

Let me first say that I realize that 
we (the SGA) have lost alot of the 
students' confidence in the last few 
weeks. But I feel that this drop in 
confidence is due largely to several 
problems which have come to the 
student body's attention, but have 
not as yet been clarified. 

In reference to the first letter 
written by Mr. Staudt, I must agree 
with his opinion that Diana Kemp 
has been publicly humiliated. Diana 
is not only a fellow Executive 
Officer, but a friend of mine as well. 
I believe that every student needs to 
be reminded that Diana is innocent 
and totally capable of her office 
unless proven otherwise. Mr. 
Staudt's opinion that the recent 
action by the SGA to form an in- 
vestigation committee is "a direct 
result of poor leadership and a 
definite lack of direction," is 
ridiculous. I elected to ask the 
Senate to form that committee 
because I felt that it would be the 
fairest and most thorough action to 
take. Since that commitee was 
formed, several areas have come 
under question that were at first 
overlooked. Questions that led a 
Senator to hastily write a bill asking 
for Diana's removal from office, 
when no investigation had yet been 
taken. It seems fairer to me to form 
an investigaion committee, whose 
purpose is not only to" investigate 

of the student body. The fallacy of 
Mr. Adams' analogy should be 

It has taken over six years to 
establish ARGUS. From Richard 
N. Fletcher's strong founding 
leadership in 1975, coupled with 
community financial support, 
ARGUS has evolved into the 
student funded, quality publication 
it is. Students may show their 
continued support by voting "YES" 
for the requested fee increase. 
Furthermore students should be 
aware that it is their contributions 
that make the magazine what it is. 

These positive suggestions are 
written in response to the negative, 
and one suspects self serving, letter 
of Mr. Adams, who would take the 
ball home if he did not make the 
team (excuse the non-literary 

Looking forward to the next issue 
of ARGUS, I remain, 

Sincerely yours, 
Allen M. Ford 

Diana, but other parties as well, 
which will be thorough and un- 
biased, than to let the Senate vote 
whether or not Diana is capable of 
her office based simply on 1 
Senator's opinion written in the 
form of a bill. Joe Stamey and I 
refused to sign this bill after it 
passed the Senate, because we felt 
that it was not only un- 
constitutional, but discrediting to 
Diana as well. I certainly do not see 
this as a sign of "leaderless and 
confused SGA" as Mr. Staudt 
stated. What the committee finds in 
its report to the Senate remains to be 
seen, but I assure you that it will be 
the result of careful investigation 
and consideration. 

In reference to another letter 
written by R.D. Adams, I could not 
agree with him (or her) more. If a 
Senator receives more than two 
unexcused absences, then he or she 
should be removed from office. It is 
my duty to remove any Senator who 
does so, and I assure you Mr. (or 
Ms.) Adams, that no Senator has as 
yet done so. 

In answer to a third letter which 
was unsigned, I agree with the writer 
that students on the campus carry a 
much heavier burden of respon- 
sibility than they realize. 

The SGA is made up of hard- 
working concerned students, who 
were elected by your vote of con- 
fidence. Each Senator has a large 
impact upon our campus rights and 
our campus life, beyond what you 
probably imagine. 

I would like to urge all students to 
come to our meetins or even join a 
committee, because the SGA's 
number one priority is to serve the 
students. Remember, as Mr. Staudt 
states, "Your school needs you!"

ternoon, turn them loose Saturday 
and give them reduced admission to 
the Christmas Lights concert. 

If they wouldn't like NSU and 
Natchitoches on that weekend I 
don't know if they would any other 
time of the year. If it is practical, 
why not try it next year? 

We've got to try something, 
anything to get more students here. 
And it might even work.... 

...You can just tell by the man's 
name what kind of person he is. 
Eugene "Smiley" Christmas; Mr. 
Chris; Dr. Chris— you just conjure 
up a mental image of a pleasant, 
friendlv. respected man 

You're right, but it goes way past 
that. Mr. Chris must have springs in 
his back because he bends over to 
help anybody and everybody 
whenever he can. 

He is the athletic trainer, and has 
been for over 20 years. His job goes 
way past that arena. He teaches 
classes and always finds time for 
anyone who needs his assistance. 

Dedication is a way of life for Mr. 
Chris. He's dedicated to serving his 
university— He's a Northwestern 
graduate his community and his 
friends. That's why he never stops 
working, he never runs out of 

"I never met a man I didn't 
like, "Will Rogers said. About 
Eugene Chrismas he might have 
said, "I never met a man who didn't 
like him. 

Mr. Chris isn't a saint, but he's as 
close as they come. 

Letters To The Editor 

Editor, Current Sauce, 

In reply to the recent "Letters to 
the Editor," I am frankly very 
confused about some of the 
comments that have appeared 
concerning the SGA under its 
current administration. 

The Student Government has 
implemented and improved more 
programs in comparison to others in 
recent years. 

One program that this ad- 
ministration has begun is the Free 
Legal Service. The SGA provides 
this service free of charge so that 
students who have problems 
requiring professional consultation 
will be able to have it without 
paying the high costs of such advice. 

Also, the SGA has begun the Free 
Speech Alley, which provides 
students with a forum in which to 
air their problems, state their 
praises, or simply make comments 
about anything that goes on in life. 
Not only does the Free Speech Alley 
enable the members of the SGA to 
find out what student problems are, 
but it also provides faculty and 
administration with a good source 
for evaluating their performances 
coming from the "mouths" of the 

In addition, the SGA is involved 
in establishing a Student Discount 
Service. This service will enable 
Northwestern students to exercise 
their group "buying power" by 
receiving discounts from local stores 
in order for us to stretch our pur- 
chases a little longer each semester. 

The Student Government is also 
in the process of improving upon 
some of the other services it 
provides. The Distinguished Lecture 
Series at NSU has often been 
recognized as one of the very best in 
Louisiana. We are expanding the 
Series to begin including such 
political figures as Senators Russell 
Long and Bennett Johnston, 
Congressman Jerry Huckaby, 
Mayor Ernest Morial as well as 
Governor Dave Treen. 

The Student Government Assn. 
has begun working more closely 
with the University Committees in 
order to continue serving as the 
"watchdog" for student rights and 
best interests. Many areas in which 
we are currently working to improve 
our services include the library, 
traffic and parking, academic 
program review as well as 
establishing a pre-registration 


The SGA is expanding its work in 
other areas, too. In addition to 
attending and representing you at 
the monthly meeting of the State 
Board of Trustees in Baton Rouge, 
we are helping to establish a better 
student lobby with the state 
legislature. The SGA will keep the 
students better informed concerning 
legislative actions that involve 
students, as well as serving as the 
coordinator in direct lobbying 
involving each student's home 

The SGA is taking an active role 
in student recruiting. The spring, 
we will send students to the high 
schools across Louisiana from 
which we have students who would 
like to go back to their alma maters 
and tell those high school students 
about the advantages of coming to 

Your SGA is also continuing it-' 
sponsorship of the SGA Student 
Loan Program. This service, 
established and governed by the 
SGA, is administered in the Student 
Services Office under the fin e 
management of Sam Smith and 
Mildred Moore. The Student Loan 
Program provides us with 
"emergency" money whenever a 
student needs it, without the hassles 
of outside loan and with the only 
"interest" amounting to a 50-cent 
service charge. The SGA Loan 
Program helps out hundreds °' 
NSU students every semester. 

Student Government has also 
undergone many changes regarding 
finances. This year's budget was cut 
well over $3,000 in expenses fronj 
last year's budget, the majority °| 
this amount being in the area of 
scholarship expenses. Homecoming 
and State Fair expenses were also 
cut drastically, although both 
"weeks" were very successful. 

Our office is located on the 
second floor of the Student Union- 
If you have a problem please let us 
know. The SGA meetings are 
Monday at 6:30 and are open to th e 
entire student body. 

I think it is easy to see the ad' 
vances this year's SGA has made- 
With the help of the student body, 
feel sure all our goals can be aC '

Demons Whip Mexico Season Comes To A Close As NSU Hosts NLU 
In Season Tune Up 

Wayne Yates' Demon hoopsters tuned up for the 1981-82 season by 
drilling the University of Mexico-Juarez 105-79 in an exhibition contest last 
Tuesday evening. 

Sparked by guards Kenny Hale and Wayne Waggoner, the Demons 
burned the nets for a 60% shooting clip. Hale, who topped all NSU scorers 
with 22, hit on 11 of 14 attempts, while Waggoner canned nine of 17 for 18 
of his 21 points. 

Even though the score indicated a blowout, it was generally close through 
the first half; in fact so close that the Mexicans had a six point lead with 
7:11 left. 

The shooting of forward Luis Valdez, plus a surprisingly strong team 
rebounding effort were main reasons why Juarez stayed with the Demons 
through the first half. Valdez had 27 points, most of them coming on 
jumpers from the corners, and he also plucked down eight rebounds. Both 
totals were game highs. 

Neither sqaud had more than a six point advantage through the first 20 
minutes, and the score was tied 10 different occasions. NSU grabbed the 
lead for good with 3:15 remaining before halftime as Waggoner connected 
on a 10 foot bank shot which gave the Demons a 36-34 advantage. 

Jerry Lynch nailed a desparation 30-foot jumber at the buzzer that upped 
the count to 48-42 at the half. 

Coming into the second half, the Demons decided to play a little alley 
ball, and even though it was not very artistic, it did get the job ac- 
complished. After Valdez drilled one in from just inside the key to cut the 
gap to 48-44, NSU proceeded to run the visitors ragged. In a span of under 
six minutes the Demons outscored Juarez 22-6 enroute to a 70-50 lead at the 
13:25 mark. Hale was the catalyst during the span as he came up with eight 
points plus dishing out a couple of assists. 

The closest Mexico could get after that was 70-55 with 10:09 to go on two 
Valdez free throws, but NSU quickly built its advantage back up at tha 
point against a weary bunch of opponents, who just played the night before 
in Ruston with Louisiana Tech, and the rest was academic. 

Yates had the luxury of playing his entire team, and all came through in 
the scoring column. One very encouraging sign was the fact all but three 
players shot 50? or above for the contest. 

The Demons held their final intersquad scrimmage of the season in 
Jonesboro last evening which will lead up to the regular season opener 
Saturday, Nov. 28 against Arkansas Tech at Prather Coliseum. 

The 1981 season comes to a close 
this weekend as our Northwestern 
Demons host Northeast Louisiana. 

Neither team is headed for post- 
season play, but if you would tend 
to think that Saturday contest 
doesn't mean too much; you're 
wrong. Whenever the Demons and 
the Indians get together you are 
going to see one of the most heated 
college football rivalries in the state. 

Northeast enters the game coming 
off a tough 17-14 loss to North 
Texas State, while NSU defeated 
Nicholls State 31-17 on Nov. 7 in its 

When you talk about NLU 
strengths, you have to look at its 
offense. Quarterback John Holman 
leads the way. The 6-0, 185- 
pounder junior who was ninth in the 
nation for total offense last year, 
comes into tonight's clash com- 
pleting 138 of 277 passes for 1,832 
yards and 14 touchdowns. Bob Lane 
has also thrown for over 1 ,000 yards 
and may be the starter tonight. 

Although Holman is considered 
to be the number one signal-caller, 

NLU coach Pat Collins has a very 
capable backup in Lane. Lane, who 
has thrown for 1,075 yards in '81, 
has been placed in clutch situations 
during the season, so don't be 
surprised if you see him at the 
controls at some point during the 

Like NSU, the Indians will throw, 
throw, and throw. No wonder why 
NLU lead the nation in passing 
offense at one time this year. 
Holman and Lane have a bevy of 
receivers to choose from. 

Bobby Craighaid has been the 
big-play man of all receivers. The 6- 
1, 195-pounder sophomore has 14 
catches for 339 yards and 3 scores. 
In his biggest game of the season 
Craighead caught only four passes 
against Southeastern Louisiana, but 
three went for touchdowns totalling 
over 200 yards. 

Other receivers the Demons' 
defensive backs will have their 
minds on will be split end Alfred 
Kinney,' along with flankers Bobby 
Lewis and Larry Hamilton. Kinney 
is among the top pass catchers in the 

country with 40 for 70 yards, plus 
nine scores. Lewis has grabbed 29 
for 338 yards plus six touchdowns, 
and Hamilton has 1 1 receptions for 
129 yards. 

Tailback Dewayne Robinson is 
tops in NLU rushing totals with 73 
carries for 455 yards and three 
scores. In a big 40-7 win over 
Louisville, Robinson became the 
first Indian rusher to go over the 
100-yard this season. 

Linebacker Ricky Sanders heads 
up the defensive charges for 
Northeast. The 6-0, 209- pound 
junior has 1 18 tackles to his credit. 
Defensive back Jody Norman will 
carry most of the burden in trying to 
put a top to the NSU passing game. 
Norman has five interceptions this 
season to lead the indians in that 
department. Last year Norman tied 
a school record with three in- 
terceptions against the Demons. 

The extra week off for NSU has 
helped them get a few of its injured 
ready to play this Saturday. Only 
the defensive backfield will be going 
in a few men short. Roy Fontenot, 

a wide receiver, is listed as numbei 
three safety on the depth chart. 

Stan Powell will get the starting 
not at quarterback for the Demons, 
although senior Eric Barkley should 
see plenty of action as he closes out 
his collegiate career along with 11 
teammates. Kenny Jones and 
Carlton Finister with 455 and 512 
yards respectively, are expected to 
join Powell in the NS backfield. 

Others seeing their final action in 
the purple and white are defensive 
back Tim Poe, wide receiver Walter 
Mays, running back Carlton 
Finister, defensive back Sonny 
Louis, wide receiver Mark Duper, 
center Chris Craighead, defensive 
tackle Bud Snodgrass, center Tony 
Fakess, offensive tackle Bob 
McGray, and wide receivers James 
Bennett and Victor Oatis. 

The outgoing seniors would like 
to go out winners on both teams, 
and because of that you will be in 
store for a great ballgame, one that 
should end the season with a bang. 

KDBH-FM will broadcast, with 
the pre-game show at 6:45. Kickoff 
is at 7.

Three Way Tie 
For Tennis Title 

The All-Campus Championships were held last Wednesday at Turpin 
Stadium and when the smoke cleared the VIPs had won the women's 
championship over Un Kappa Fifth, and the Kappa Sigma team took a 
victofy over the Steelers. 

After a scoreless first half in the women's championship, the VIPs stuck 
early in the second stanza on a 20 yard scoring connection from Lisa 
Lennan to Susan Prince. The extra point attempt was no good and that left 
the score 6-0. 

Un Kappa Fifth scored on their next possession with Sherri Brooks taking 
the last 1 1 yards for the score. The extra point was good and Un Kappa 
Fifth took a 7-6 lead. 

The VIPs then drove the length of the field and Susan Prince again did 
the honors from 12 yards away. That brought the score to 12-7, and with 
the extra point attempt to Renetta Judice good the lead increased to 13-7. 

Un Kappa Fifth had one last chance to score but were held on their own 
40 yard line where the VIPs took over on downs. 

The VIPs ran out the clock and took the six point victory. 

The Miller Brewing Company's MVP for the Women's game went to 
Susan Prince who had both the touchdowns for the winners. 

In the men's championship, Kappa Sigma got on the scoreboard first on a 
six yard scoring run by quarterback Jay Vail. The extra point to Mark 
Cottrell was good and the Sigs lead 7-0. 

The Steelers scored on their next possession to bring the score to 7-6. The 
score came on the big play, the kind that got the tea to the turf, a 52 yard 
scoring pass from Keith Epps to david Fuller. 

The Kappa Sigmas took a 14-6 halftime lad when Jay Vail connected with 
center eff leachman on a 16 yard scoring play. Cottrell again scored the 
extra point as time ran out in the half. 

The lead was increased to 20-6 when Vail ran six yards in for his second 
TD on the night. 

The champions then put the game out of reach when vail hooked up with 
Mike Brown on a 52 yard bomb to bring the score to 26-7. Roger Reynolds 
scored the Sigs final point on the night with the extra point. 

The Steelers brought the game back to respectability when Epps hit 
Kenneth Mosely on the longest scoring play of the night a 61 yrd TD. From 
there Kappa Sigma ran out the clock to take a 27-12 win. 

Mike Brown took the Miller MVP award for his four pass receptions and 
flawless defense. 

The Miller Brewing Co. and Natchitoches Beverage sponsored the awards 
for the game which included team tropies and first place individual 
trophies. All participants receive Intramural-Miller Brewing T-shirts.

Laurie Martin Scores Upset, 
Sjoberg Back From Brazil, 

Baumgardner Leaders Porker 

Panel For First Time Ever 

In one of the biggest upsets in 
modern Current Sauce Porker 
Picker history, a relative unknown, 
cheerleader Laurie Martin, a 
freshman Nursing Major from 
Opelousas, has won the predictions 
race for the week with a 7-3 record, 
and former leader, the ex-fugitive, 
Bob Sjoberg has resurfaced after 
going a miserable 3-7. 

For her efforts, Laurie was 
automatically reinstated into this 
weeks edition of the Porker Picker 
Panel under Article V, Section 27, 
Clause 978-B which states, "Any 
female cheerleader from Opelousas 
who is majoring in nursing, upon 
completion of her week as guest 
panelist, for the Current Sauce 
Porker Pickers, and who has 
successfully picked at least 70% of 
her assigned games right, and who 
has a better record that any of the 
panelists , j s to be reinstated to the 
next week's edition of the Porker 
Picker Panel, at no extra charge, 
other that the original $4.74 service 
charge that Cunningham demands 
as a finder's fee, in case some 
Hollywood talent agent discovers 
them after looking at the Panel." 

Sjoberg, who flew in from Brazil 
when it was announced that he went 
3-7 last week, dropped all the way 
from first place to a tie for third 
place with none other than David 
Stamey (6-4) who was directly 
responsible for Sj
